Ghana have too many referees, says King Faisal coach Paulette

The coach of the Kumasi-based side said the increase in number of referees in Ghana does not commensurate the kind of training they are supposed to have to improve the league
King Faisal coach Roberto Carlos Paulette has said the large number of referees in Ghana is affecting football officiating, especially in the top flight league.

He noted that standard is low as compared to other leagues in Africa because the country keeps churning out centre referees without refresher courses to upgrade their standards.

“Let’s been honest, there is a great majority of referees in this country who I think need a bit more improvements all around. In fact, I think there are too many referees. That’s one of the problems that exist, they are just too many of them,” Paulette told Radio Ghana.

King Faisal have amassed just six points from the eight-week-old Ghana Premier League season and sit second from bottom of the log.

The coach assured that they will find solution to their poor start to the term and will show more character in their remaining matches.  
He added: “We are going to concentrate on showing more positive character in our remaining matches and also be a bit more tolerant in terms of decision making by referees.”
