Ghana referee, J. A Amenya says it will be a disgrace to Ghanaian match officials if foreigners are made to handle week 31 fixture between Hearts of Oak and Kotoko.
Hearts of Oak welcome Kotoko for match day 31 at the Accra Sports Stadium with news gone viral that foreign officials will be appointed for Ghana’s version of “Super Clash.”
The rivals, who lead the 2020/21 Ghana premier league log with 53 points apiece, clash on Sunday, June 27.
J.A Amenya believes Ghanaian referees should be entrusted with the big game.
“Why should we call for a foreign referee?
“We should believe in our own, I don’t think there is pressure unless of course the game is beyond the person’s experience that the person needs to be psyched up.
“But Hearts and Kotoko let me tell you, there is nothing much.
“It is just like a normal game but if you tune your mind to the fact that it is Hearts and Kotoko with big name players, that is when pressure sometimes sets in.
“We the referee have psyched up ourselves and motivated ourselves to give up our best.
“Mistakes are bound to come but when they come, they are genuine, we should take them [referees] as human and support them.” J A Amenya told Ahomka fm.
