Liberty Professionals Coach J. E Sarpong has warned that his explosive comments about a possible gunning down of a referee should not take the attention away from poor officiating in the ongoing GLO premier league.

J E Sarpong believes the league risk losing interest totally even from clubs and players if refereeing does not improve.

The 64 year old went wild and accused referee Awal Mohammed of poor officiating after his side threw away a two goal lead to draw 2-2 at New Edubiase in the Glo Premier League last Sunday.

“I still stand by the statement because I made it in good fate”. He told JOY Sports

“The truth of the matter is that sometimes you have to talk for the masses and I don't think I made it out of any magic but I made that statement for action to be taken against the referees to avoid any future occurrences”

J E Sarpong will appear before the Football Association's Ethics Committee next Tuesday to justify comments made last Sunday that a referee could be shot soon for poor officiating.

The Ethics Committee indicates J E Sarpong could be severely punished with a hefty fine and a long suspension from the bench.
