Ref Committee Confirms No Penalty Against City

The Referee Committee Has Made A Decision On A Cape Town City Incident

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 11, 2018 10:20 AM

Cape Town City have confirmed the South African Football Association’s review on a decision which was made on their goalkeeper, Peter Leeuwenburgh. 

The Dutch shot-stopper received a yellow card booking for an alleged tackle on Bidvest Wits striker, Simon Murray, during their Absa Premiership encounter last week, which subsequently resulted in a penalty kick.

According to the referee committee, the official made an error and after review, found out that there was no contact between the City goalkeeper and Murray and that the correct decision should have seen a yellow card shown to Murray for simulation and an indirect free kick against Wits.

City confirmed this on their Twitter account by saying, “The review committee has, once again, confirmed that an incorrect decision was made against Cape Town City that influenced the result of a league match. 

“The report confirms that simulation was performed by Bidvest Wits striker Simon Murray to incorrectly receive a penalty, after no contact. The referee should not have awarded the penalty, should have booked Murray and not Leeuwenburgh.”

“Unfortunately, like the Putsche-Masehe incident, the league and SAFA do not have the platform to rectify (retrospectively) such severe errors - leaving Cape Town City with more erroneous results at the hands of refereeing mistakes,” City added.

So now, where to from here, is the association going to give a yellow card to Simon Murray and reverse Peter Leeuwenburgh's yellow card and withdraw the goal scored on the penalty spot??? I would love to know that.

Such things are happening and from there the referees get the blames while the players are to be blamed why don't the commitee takes that seconds and replays the foul and see.

@Bugs for life Your comment about Chiefs is baseless and have no substance. Why your uncle still stays in an apartheid build house?

Our football is going no where by suppoting mistakes made by match officials by saying this is old, some of big teams use to win by those styles of prettending bad tackles Match officials need proper training, they can't all agree on such bad decision just because the so called big teams use to win by same tricks, not good at all( Cape Town City) was robbed by yellow card which they did not deserve at all

But this is part of football,I remember Kaizer Chips used to win trophies like this during apartheid era so this is not something new in SA football, brown envelop worked for Wits and CTC should just forget about it and focus on their up coming games there is no use of crying over a split milk..

These decisions should be reversed!Why having a review commitee if such things wont be corrected?We need to introduce VAR in psl and allow captains to have 3 or 4 refferals per game like in Cricket,atleast teams will have a chance to claim some taste of justice

Why don't we bring VAR to the game. These refferees committee decisions do not change the results, they do not have an impact on the game, they do not stop any injustice, all in all, they are USELESS. Bring the VAR to the game.

@setlaboswana not them alone. Other teams too let us appreciate that at long last the review committee is breathing.

They can only make a confirmation but the outcome of the game remains unchanged.

What about the Downs/Celtic game where a goal was disallowed?

@Dangerous when provoked, my man, there is difference between a honest error and gross irregularity. What these referees are doing to the beautiful game is unforgivable, remember also Downs have been on the receiving end of these match officials in their two previous fixtures against Celtic and Wits, what do you call that?
