Ghanaian referee Alex Kotey has been slapped with a suspension by the Referee Association of Ghana (RAG) following a comment he made on Happy FM Sports Show.
According to RAG, retired referee Kotey comment, “I will not mention any name because I don’t know any name. That’s why I said we must all bow down our heads in shame” I can’t mention any referee who has the integrity, not even the RAG chairman” is a case of defamatory to the association and needs to face a suspension after fruitful ways to meet him has proved futile.
The letter signed by Kwao Sampson, deputy General Secretary stated that, until Alex Kotey appears before RAG committee, he is suspended from all football activities and RAG activities.
