Marques: We Were The Better Team

Zeca Marques was not happy with the officiating after his Moroka Swallows side lost 2-1 to Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Stadium in an ABSA Premiership match on Sunday afternoon.

Marques believed his players weren't protected, and that there had been two sets of rules applied, one for each team.

He said that he believed his team had proved they were the better team on the field, and that his side had showed a great deal of character against a club with infinite resources.

"Obviously I don't believe we should have lost this game, all being equal we should have at least drawn it, but football is not about being fair.

"We weren't given the protection once again, (there were three fouls) all these things, no one saw them, there were two different sets of rules on the field for different teams, and that's the sad part about this game.

"Overall, I think our team showed character, we were reduced to ten players for very long periods, and we kept going, in the end I think we deserved the draw at least.

"I thought pound-for-pound we were the better team on the field, I don't care what anyone says, we played with ten players, and they've got all the money in the world. We showed today that we've got character, and with character we can do things."

"Money doesn't always buy you success, and we knew that if everything was fair on the day, and it's not always, which is the sad thing about football, we had a chance. And we proved it today, we scored one goal, and we had another chance.

"I think overall we were the better squad, we dominated second half, what can I say, they won the battle, and the war!"
