Former Ghana Under-17 star Awudu Issaka believes the sorry working condition will make it impracticable to curtail bribery in Ghana Football.
The former World Cup winner maintains attempt to wash away bribery and corruption will only remain a pipe dream due to the poor working condition of referees and the unwillingness of officials to stop the practice in the West African nation.
He however, advised Ghanaians to lower their expectation of the newly constituted Normalization Committee.
“We have to be honest with ourselves and lower our expectation for the Normalization Committee,” he told Asempa FM.
“I say this because there is no way that the bribery in Ghana football will stop.
“It will never stop because club officials are not ready to stop and the referees are also poorly paid to the extent that they need to depend on the gifts that home clubs offer them.
“Sometimes, I give the referees who officiate in my [club’s] games appreciation fee, and I don’t see it as a bribe.
“It doesn’t matter whether I lose the game or win, I still give them because I know how poorly they are paid.”
