Former Ghana international and owner of defunct Yegola FC has made a shocking revelation about Ghanaian referees.
Tony Yeboah in 2014 confirmed his exit from football administration by selling his club Yegola FC.
Prior to that, he revealed that he was quitting football because referees had ganged up against his team for refusing to pay bribes and it was one of the reasons why his team was relegated.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with veteran sports journalist Kwabena Yeboah, the former Leeds United striker opened up on his encounter with Ghanaian referees.
“But what I realized is that Ghana football when you don’t pay the referees you will not win.
“They have to come to you and ask you when you are not paying you are going to lose. They tell you directly. It is the fact”
“So I was complaining and complaining. Because I remember one of the matches i think it was against one of the Obuasi teams. The referee was so bad. Officiating was very very bad and I went to the referee and asked do you know me? Am Tony Yeboah but the way you handled the match is not good.
“He told me so this is your first time of coming into the league? When the person comes to your home it is yours, and when you go to them it is for them”, he concluded.
