Ahead of Sundowns’ league clash against Chiefs…. 

"We will pray for match officials"

“Benni was crying, I am crying and AmaZulu were complaining, Steve Komphela was complaining and even Owen (da Gama) was complaining. Who doesn’t complain? It’s a joy ride.

“We will pray for the officials not to make mistakes that they have been making,” he told the media.

After losing 2-0 to Chiefs...

“I want to see if referees will make mistakes against Pirates”

“We have to admit that they are a lot stronger this year and the influence of the coach helps because he wants to win. But Chiefs didn’t have the help from referees who make mistakes last year – it’s a fact. But is this a spiral or what? When is it going to end? This thing must stop. I want to see if referees will make mistakes against Pirates,” he told the media.

“Something has to give in now. I don’t think Pirates supporters will allow it. You can’t win every game by referee’s mistakes. It’s enough. We have seen it before, but now it’s a series. Is this a football match or what? Excuse me,” he added.

Again after 2-0 loss to Chiefs…

"But when they [Chiefs] benefit, I will say it, they are benefitting from referees' mistakes. I don't know if we're back to the 80's [1980's] but all I'm saying is Chiefs are benefitting from referees'mistakes. Even if it doesn't look that much of an offside or what, when it's Kaizer Chiefs buckle up!” he told the media.

Do you think Chiefs have benefitted from referees this season? Let us know in the comments section below.
