The premier league center referee Yaw Ametepe is not bothered at all after copping a ten-year ban by the Referees Association of Ghana on Monday.
Ametepe was one of the 53 referees implicated in the Anas video and slapped with ten-year bans by the Referees association but the Sunyani-based referee has laughed off the punishment saying he’s already retired.
“When they call me during their investigation I didn’t go. I didn’t see the relevance in going because I had already retired from refereeing. So what is the point in giving me a ten year ban.” Ametepe told Otec FM.
“I have already left the game and so how will this 10 year ban affect me. I don’t care at all.” the referee laughed off the punishment.
Ametepe was handed an 8-match suspension last season for his horrible performance in the Ashantigold 0 Hearts of Oak 1 league game in Obuasi and he a reputation as a controversial referee.
