female referee

A football match in Ghana took a sad twist as a female referee was reportedly assaulted by a female footballer.

Referee Faizatu Jakpa was attacked and beaten up by a player of the Fabulous Ladies in the Ghana women’s league match between Fabulous Ladies and Kumasi Sports Academy.


The incident left Jakpa with a swollen face and scratches on her face.

It is however unclear if the football club or player involved have been sanctioned.
