Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi says bad officiating in Black Stars friendly games is a major factor in recent unimpressive results.
The Black Stars are yet to win a single friendly game since returning from the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
Ghana has drawn 1-1 with Chile, played out another 1-1 draw with China and lost 2-0 to Liberia in the last three friendly game played after the 2012 AFCON where Ghana placed fourth.
Friendly matches have become very important for national sides not only for preparing the team for upcoming assignments, but also offers an opportunity to boost it’s rating on the Fifa/Coca Cola World Ranking.
The Black Stars’ recent results in friendly games especially with the draw against China and the surprising defeat to Liberia has not come without controvercy with match officials being fingured for the biases towards the home sides.
And the Ghana FA chief says the side suffered a similar fate in the hands of Liberian referee Jerry Yekeh in the defeat to the Lone Stars on Tuesday.
“Unfairness should not be strictly be influenced by where you come from,” he told GHANAsoccdernet.com.
“When we played China, the referee came from Korea, he was equally bad although he was not a local referee.
“If we had known in advance or we have been told that the man will be a local referee (against Liberia) maybe our reaction would have been different.
“But we were told the referee would be an international referee from Sierra Leone.”
