Ex-Class One referee, E.R. Biney has accused Ghana’s Association of Referees of reducing the age of referees ahead of FIFA appointments.
E.R. Biney stated that officials are also involved in the criminal act of age cheating.
‘I know very well that all the ages used by us are tinkered. Ages are not pegged from the start. If you want to be a referee, you have to be profitably working, because you need to buy your kits and other stuff before you get to FIFA. But, if you reach FIFA at 45 years of age, you are overage and you have to reduce your age.’
The veteran referee had a 16 year long career before controversies about his age forced him into retirement.
