Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi says he will raise the issue of poor refereeing on the African continent at a CAF Executive Committee meeting next week.
The Black Stars were subjected to woeful officiating in the 1-0 win over Malawi in the 2013 African Cup of Nations qualifier on October 13 in Lilongwe.
The Ghanaian players were consistently hacked down by the Flames with Sudanese referee Abdel Khalid Rahman issuing absolutely no cards for the persistent fouls.
Rahman’s performance amongst others have got football fans worried about the level of declining refereeing on the continent especially with the Nations Cup just around the corner.
And Nyantakyi, a CAF Executive Committee member disclosed the issue will be again revisited at a scheduled CAF meeting next week in South Africa.
“Of course, we don’t speak on these issues in the media but it is thoroughly discussed during CAF meetings,” he told Kumasi-based Kessben FM.
“Even FIFA is particular on the protection of players on the field of play so it is something we will discuss at a CAF meeting next week.”
