Former Ghanaian Female FIFA Referee Mercy Tagoe says Ghanaian referees will suffer after FIFA banned one of the nation’s top notch Referees.
The FIFA Disciplinary Committee today decided to ban Joseph Odartei Lamptey from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at national and international level for life.
Lamptey was found guilty of breaching the FIFA Disciplinary Code during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia qualifying match between South Africa and Senegal on November 12, 2016.
Mercy Tagoe has described the latest development as a misfortune.
“Its a misfortune because to err is human so i was expecting that they will temper justice with mercy but its unfortunate that he is been banned”
“Its really going to affect our Referees and tarnish the image of Ghana football ad refereeing as well and it will affect us in our selection to these international matches”
“When i was there, i managed to attend some international games but with development,if will affect every FIFA Referee we have in Ghana”She told Starr FM
