Referee Hamid Sessay banned four matches by GFA – Citi Sports Online

[ad_1]

Referee Hamid Sessay has been handed a four match ban in respect of the Ghana Premier League match between Great Olympics and WAFA in Accra.

The GFA Referees Committee took this decision after receiving two complaints from Great Olympics on the performance of the Referee.

The first complaint was on a penalty claim after Gladson Awako “was heavily brought down” on 62 minute inside the penalty box.

The second complaint relates to a foul on the same player in the 70th minute which Olympics again felt they deserved a penalty.

After a critical review, the Committee found that the referee was correct not to give a penalty in the complaint on the 62nd-minute because the incident happened outside the box and there was no contact between the defender and the attacking player.

However, it was found out that the second incident merited a penalty because the defender brought down the Olympics forward in the penalty box in the full view of the referee. The referee, therefore, made a clear and obvious error in ignoring it.

The committee also found that Referee Hamid Sessay was generally not at his best for that particular game.

It was therefore recommend that a four-match ban be placed on referee Sessay for the clear and obvious error. The length of the ban takes into account the fact that this is the first infraction on his part this season.
