Asante-Twum added that there are about six FIFA-accredited referees in the Division One League who are doing well, and so are given the chance to officiate in the Premier League.

He said that Ghana football has a long way to go because the laws of the game change very often. The FA spokesman disclosed that out of the 80 center referees, he can only mention fifteen off the top of his head who are FIFA referees.
