The Ghana Football Association has handed referee Issaka Afful a four-match ban for awarding two dubious penalties against Asante Kotoko in their 2-1 defeat at Medeama in April during a premier league game.
Assistant referee one Kwesi Brobbey was also handed the same punishment by the FA.
The Match Review Panel concluded that, their judgments or decisions in that particular match was below standard.
The ban took effect 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.”
