Newly appointed Ghanaian Referees Manager, Mr. Alexander Neequaye Kotey has said the Anas Expose created a bad image for Ghanaian referees.
In an interview with Gattuso on Kingdom FM All Sports, Mr. Alex Quartey revealed,
“It affected us and it was not only Ghanaian referees but other foreign referees was involved during the WAFU tournament.
“It was a blow to African Football and I think all the referees have learnt something from it. I think it has just awakened us up and it is there to guide us so that we will not go back to it again.”
He advised the referees and the entire football fraternity to bounce back.
“We must rather be looking at the positive. Let’s promote the positive. I have been offered money before but I reported on that. It is gone and we don’t need to always go back for the past, the past is there to guide us. What is in front is needed most. “He ended.
