Member of the Ghana Football Executive committee, Mr. Kojo Yankah, has revealed why Ghana's best referee always make wrong decisions on the pitch.
 
The World football governing body, FIFA, handed a life ban on Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey for match manipulation.
 
He awarded a controversial penalty to the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Senegal last year.
 
According to Mr. Yankah, the Accra based referee has a sight problem which has affected him for the past years in his refereeing career.
 
The chairman of the Western Regional Football Association also explained that referee Lamptey has never taken bribe before and will describe him as one of West African's best referees.
 
"It's very sad for one of the best referees in West Africa to get a life ban in football" Mr. Yankah told Sunyani based Space FM
 
"He [Joseph Lamptey] has a sight problem and it is the main reason for this ban because it has affected him few years ago"
 
He added "His sight problem affected him during one of CAF's courses for referees which he could have lost his FIFA badge but after some tests it was given back to him''
 
"I will always describe him as one of the finest referees because he will never take bribe from a football administrator even when you beg him to take it....Yeah he will never do that''
 
"Lamptey's eye problem has really affected him and you can watch those videos that resulted his life ban, he was always not close to the incidents" he concluded.
