Alex Kotey said in an interview with Joy Sports that the delay in implementing the VAR system has been due to funding and FIFA introducing a different technology for African countries.

He added that Ghana is the only country from the WAFU Zone B to have started the VAR project since it was approved for use by FIFA.
