Rising referee Issaka Afful has been handed a four-match by the Ghana Football Association for awarding two penalties against Asante Kotoko in their 2-1 defeat at Medeama back in April.
His assistant one Kwesi Brobbey also copped at the same match ban.
The Match Review Panel concluded that, their judgments or decisions in that particular match was below standard.
The ban took effective from match day 16. A letter dated May 30, 2017; signed by the GFA’s Deputy General Secretary, Alex Asante noted with disappointment:
”After [a] careful study of the report of the GFA Match Review Committee, the Executive Committee has approved the recommendation stated in the report on the above-mentioned match that; Referee Issaka Afful and his Assistant [One], Kwesi Brobbey are banned for four matches from match day 16.”
