Middendorp Feels Chiefs Deserved A Penalty

Kaizer Chiefs coach, Ernst Middendorp, feels that his side should have been awarded a penalty during the extra-time of their match against Highlands Park, before losing on penalties in the end. 

Chiefs were knocked out of the Nedbank Cup after losing 5-4 in penalty shootout during the match at the Makhulong Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The German coach feels that Amakhosi should have been awarded a penalty kick during extra-time for what looked like a foul on striker Dumisani Zuma.

“Both teams played under unfavourable conditions. We struggled a bit to adapt but I thought we could have been awarded a penalty during extra-time when Dumisani Zuma was tripped with a clear chance to score,” said Middendorp, as quoted on Chiefs’ official website.
