Ref Committee Confirms No Penalty Against City

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.
