Accra based referee Seidu Tijani believes the Referees Appointment Committee favours some referees who fail the fitness test by assigning matches to them to officiate in the Glo Premier League.

Referee Seidu who failed the recent fitness test, says the fitness test is not transparent since it favours some of the referees who fail the test.

In an interview on Asempa FM’s on Wednesday, Mr. Seidu stated that, “the initial agreement between the Referees Appointment Committee and the referees was that, those who failed the fitness test will be assigned to officiate matches in the Reserve League and the Division One but here is the case, where you see some who failed along with him officiating in the Glo league”.

He stressed that, if there is no favouritism then he expects the referees committee to give all of them the opportunity because some cannot fail and still be officiating matches in the league.
