The Match Review Panel of the Ghana Football Association, GFA has issued a season long ban on two referees in the Division One.
The two Referees, including the centre referee, A.F Zakari and his assistant were accused of disallowing a goal in the game between Wassaman FC and Star Madrid.
The complaint was made by Wassaman FC who accused the referees for disallowing a goal which resulted in the abrupt end of the match.
In a published release on the FA’s official website, the Match Review Panel ruled that the referee should have allowed the goal to stand.
The Panel further ruled that Referee Zakari’s assistant contributed to the disallowance of the goal.
It will be recalled that there were some violent actions by fans who attended the match which saw some players and team officials get injured after the goal was disallowed.
