Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) Chairman, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamaklo, has hit hard at referees in Ghana saying they are “corrupt to the core”.
His claims comes after several allegations of corruption against football administrators as well as match officials in the local game.
According to the tough talking administrator, referees in this country allows themselves to be influenced which affects fair and firm officiating in the Ghana Premier League.
“The sought of situation Ghana Football finds itself in now is all because of referees, I will not blame any other person” he stated on Asempa FM’s Ultimate sport show Friday.
“These referees are corrupt to the core, if there is any one of them who is ready to challenge me he should come forward”.
“We played Aduana Stars not long ago where a Heart of Oak player was kicked in the chest but the referee saw nothing wrong with that. How can they behave like this?”
“I’m not surprised they are where they are, because with this sought of behavior they won’t go anywhere”.
