No Goal-line Technology For SA After Chiefs Incident

There have been fresh calls for goal-line technology in South Africa after Platinum Stars’ ‘goal’ against Kaizer Chiefs, but there are no plans to implement it.
 
 
The Amakhosi will feel hard done by after Robert Ng’ambi’s strike was adjudged to have crossed the line, however replays showed that Itumeleng Khune had actually managed to make the save.
 
Steve Komphela called for GLT to be brought into the PSL following the game, which ended 1-1 thanks to Hendrick Ekstein, although it appears that the league will not be changing their stance anytime soon.
 
Luxolo September, the PSL’s communications manager, told the Siya crew that they feel there are more important things to focus on for African football at this moment in time.
 
September said, “There have been some discussions on goal-line technology in South Africa, but you have to contextualise it and see how expensive it is. We’re not implementing it, it was discussed after the Brazil World Cup but that’s it.
 
“In Africa you have to look at what is more important. Goal-line technology or the development of other things to better the game.”
 
Komphela bemoaned the lack of GLT after the game, telling the media, “I hope this will not come out as an excuse, but this could have been dealt with in a better manner.
 
"There is a strong case to recommend we introduce it. And looking at the product in the PSL, I think the game is now at a very high level that we also have to keep up to the standards. This was a huge setback. We dropped two points at the back of that. It could work, saving our jobs and our lives.”
 
However, last night’s goal stood, condemning Chiefs to their sixth league game without a win and their worst run in the Absa Premiership in over a decade.
