Polokwane Coach Admits To Feeling 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.

YOU are blaming the referee MR coach but that was supposed to be said by MR Mcathy. BEN.Not you. The referee said it was a goal but the linesman flagged Majoro for an offside which was not an offside. What do you expect referees to do to your team. Everyone who watched the game was very disappointed by the way the linesman flagged Majoro.

Your job would have been safe if only your players didn't raise their performance only against big clubs like sundowns

I understand nobody wanted to loose but truth be told MR Molekwa. That was really a hand ball and a penalty was good from MR referee. Where you happy for that same game when the linesman flagged Majoro for offside when one of your players was covering the goal post when your goal keeper rushed to mark Majoro. Lets be fare. Was that an offside MR Molekwa?.That was not an offside MR coach and the game was supposed to be 2:0 favour Cape town city
