Mngqithi: Everybody Makes Mistakes

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi says while there is a need for VAR, people should accept that everybody makes mistakes.

This was in reference to the officiating in the MTN8 clash between Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs at Lucas Moripe Stadium, particularly in the penalty shootout when the Tshwane outfit was not awarded a goal that had gone over the line by the time Amakhosi goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune got his hands to it.

Sundowns goalkeeper coach Wendel Robinson was sent off as the bench protested the decision not to have the goal awarded.

“The need for Var is there. It makes for a bit of a difference, but at times they make a mistake with VAR. But in this case, Zakhele (Siwela) was there, so what is the use of bringing the linesman if he is not going to be able to tell the referee it’s a goal," Mngqithi told the media after the game.

"The linesman was five or six metres away from the situation, unlike when he is on the touchline. It’s one of those situations I don’t want to speak about because I also believe we had a penalty call on that side during the second half, but we have to accept that everybody makes mistakes. Let’s not dwell too much on it.”

There were more controversial moments during the shootout, as replays showed that Sundowns goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene was off his line for Amakhosi’s spot-kicks, but no retakes were ordered.

Sundowns, meanwhile, will play Golden Arrows in the semi-final.
