Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has in a new aspect of his infamous Number 12 expose’, explained how football referees use their cards.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, he stated that the act of giving out a red card is usually a rehearsed act, and does not relate to the reality on the pitch.
Giving further details, he stated that those who wish to employ the services of the referee to engage in corrupt acts need to know that the fact that the referee has a whistle in his mouth changes nothing, as a lot can be determined even before the game starts.
He went on to say that one referee Safo Adade told an undercover investigator of the Tiger Eye PI team that if the right price is paid, he could assist in conjuring the punitive cards for specific players in a game between Dansoman-based Liberty Professionals and Wa All Stars.
Despite the bribe, the match ended in a goalless draw.
Adade allegedly went on to say that for all referees to work in unison, each official’s bribe had to be determined.
He also revealed that he often took charge of pre-match meetings with officials of football clubs, where monies are shared.
