Under Which Referee Has Sundowns Won The Most Games?
Assessing Sundowns' Refereee Statistics
As we continue to address the influence of referees on the 2016/17 season’s results, we now look at the referee that has overseen the most victories for Mamelodi Sundowns.
Sundowns narrowly missed out on the Absa Premiership title, finishing three points off of the top of the standings, with Gavin Hunt’s Bidvest Wits title. They also finished runners-up to The Students in the MTN8, while being knocked out in the Telkom Knockout and Nedbank Cup by SuperSport United in the quarter-finals and Golden Arrows in the Round of 16 respectively.
The Brazilians experienced their best results under Thando Ndzandzeka and Kulasande Qongqo, who both oversaw four victories, with Ndzandzeka also taking charge of a draw and Qongqo only overseeing victories when officiating his four games in Sundowns’ game.
Ndzandzeka was in charge of the win over Chippa United in the MTN8 and the league wins against Golden Arrows, Bidvest Wits and Free State Stars, as well as the 2-2 draw against Baroka. Meanwhile, Qongqo was in charge of four league wins against Platinum Stars, SuperSport United, Golden Arrows and Orlando Pirates.
On the other hand, Pitso Mosimane’s charges experienced worse luck with Victor Hlungwani and Victor Gomes, under which they won none of their six games and three more under each of them respectively.
