Golden Arrows head coach Mandla Ncikazi was not pleased with an incident that took place with the referee during their loss to Kaizer Chiefs.
Arrows' hopes of clinching the CAF Confederation Cup spot took a knock after suffering a 3-2 loss at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening.
While Ncikazi felt Chiefs were worthy winners on the night, he did take issue with the referee's warning to him after not allowing a penalty.
"Congratulations to Kaizer Chiefs. I thought they gave a good fight today. We can't take that away from them. Respect to them and the brand," the Arrows coach told SuperSport after the game.
"I thought we created enough chances in the first half to win. I thought we had the better of the chances. We defended badly. If you defend like that you are not going to win football matches. While I'm saying this, our players have fought.
"It was not easy. But I don't want to take away the win from Kaizer Chiefs. But I want to repeat the referee's words. There's a pull in the box, he says 'next time there's a pull like that I'm going to give a penalty'.
"I'm asking myself what does that mean. If there's a foul that happens in the penalty area, he gives a yellow card to the opponent, but he doesn't give a foul. If you ask why is that, he threatens you with a yellow card. It's unfortunate. Sometimes people are invincible or immortal because they've got the law in their hands. We don't want to be charged by the league. But it's not nice when these things happen.
"Chiefs took their chances well and I respect them. I just don't like what happened there. If I can see it from the bench, how can a person who is closer to the action not see it?"
