Chiefs v AmaZulu: 'Suspicious Behaviour Needs To Be Investigated'

With Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu set for their second DStv Premiership match of the season, we are reminded of the drama that ensued when the two teams met in the first-round clash last month.

In what was to become a major talking point of that weekend of October 02, Chiefs were controversially awarded a penalty in the dying minutes which helped them to equalize through Keagan Dolly and earned a vital point in an entertaining match at the Kings Park Stadium in Durban.

Despite it being awarded as a penalty by the match officials, replays suggested that the ball did not hit any of the AmaZulu players in hand and the decision did not sit well with any of those close to the Durban-based club. 

Having spoken to the Siya crew about the incident, former AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela questioned the match officials for their decisions and feels that some of their actions need to be investigated.

“You’ve got to look at the kind of decisions that are made and you say to yourself, can that in all honestly ever be a human error. Let’s talk about the Chiefs/AmaZulu mistake, a fourth official was standing far away from where the action was, but overruled the referee who was seven metres away and the referee allowed it. Can that ever make sense?” questioned Sokhela.

“I mean, you see soccer players when they play and how they react to situations, the Kaizer Chiefs players were not even animated. They didn’t even consider that to have been a penalty. They were shocked themselves that they were given a penalty. There is a human error and there’s a blatant suspicious behaviour that needs to be investigated more thoroughly. It’s such things that we mustn’t be naïve about as some clubs are under more pressure than others and people will do whatever it takes and will get results at all costs, that’s the reality,” added the official.
