Referee Eric Owusu Mensah claims injury was the reason why he failed the recent fitness test.
The Kumasi-based referee popularly known as â€˜Kalaâ€™ pulled out from the fitness exercise held at the El-Wak Stadium on Sunday.
Owusu Mensah joined two other notable names; Charles Nii Tagoe and Theresah Bremansu in failing the recent fitness test which will see them withdrawn from officiating in the Ghanaian top flight.
But â€˜Kalaâ€™ claims he was unable to complete the exercise due to injury.
â€œI got myself injured while doing the test so I had to pull out,â€ he told Metro FM.
â€œIt is not because I failed the test, I was injured.
â€œI will go and cure myself and return strongly next time.â€
