Referee Yaw Ametepe has denied quitting officiating in the top-flight after he was banned for the rest of the season for poor performance.
He was slapped with the ban for awarding a bad penalty to New Edubiase during their Premier League fixture against All Stars.
The Class one referee who suspected foul play claimed he was treated unfairly with the ban but has categorically denied ever making quit claims.
“I never said I have retired from refereeing. I don’t know where those things are coming from because if you listen to the interview very well, I only said the ban was unfair but it was too early to decide anything”. Ametepe told Sunyani-based Storm FM
“All those stories making rounds are untrue because I have had several calls from top referees and other big men who have advised me to just lay low and serve the ban but in fact am very very disappointed with the ban.
“I have not decided on anything like quitting, I just want to move on from there,”
His denial is in sharp contrast to what he told Kumasi-based Kessben FM where he stated explicitly that he was livid with the decision and opted to quit the profession.
“I have taken a decision not to officiate again; no one can come and ask me anything.”
