Polokwane Coach Admits To Feeling Pressure
Polokwane City Coach Under Pressure
Polokwane City head coach, Bernard Molekwa, admits to feeling the pressure due to the team’s disappointing results.
Rise and Shine have lost four matches in a row and the club's last win was against Mamelodi Sundowns in August. Following their 1-0 loss against Cape Town City on Friday, Polokwane are positioned 15th on the Absa Premiership log.
Molekwa expressed his unhappiness with the officiating of the match referee Cedrick Muvhali.
“The game looked like (it was going to end in) a draw. Unfortunately, the referee is the one who decided the result by giving the penalty. If you check it well, it was not even a penalty. Some of the decisions I don’t think were good,” said Molekwa.
In their next match, Polokwane will host Orlando Pirates at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on September 30.
“They (referees) are not aware that these kinds of decisions cost the coach’s job. He (Muvhali) will be going home smiling. He will be feeding his kids or his family and I will be losing the job. It’s not good. If I lose fairly and lose my job I would go to the mirror and say ‘It’s fine, I failed.’ But if someone decides it for you that is not good at all,” concluded the coach.
