What Pitso And De Sa Said To Incur PSL Wrath…

Why Did Pitso Mosimane & Roger De Sa Get In Trouble With The PSL?

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 06, 2018 12:03 PM
Pitso Mosimane and Roger de Sa have both been asked to explain themselves after comments made about PSL officials, but what exactly did the duo say? 
 
 
The current refereeing situation in South Africa has been widely spoken about in recent months, with several coaches criticising the officials for poor performances that they say are affecting games in the Absa Premiership.
 
Today it was confirmed that Mosimane and De Sa have been given five working days to respond to the criticisms from the league following their post-match interviews last month.
 
Speaking after Sundowns’ 1-1 draw with SuperSport United on February 24th, Mosimane said, “You hear what Benni McCarthy is saying and Benni will always be called to disciplinary hearings because that guy in the DC in the PSL offices is waiting to collect the money from the coaches.” 
 
While De Sa, speaking after his side’s loss to Maritzburg United, said, “Before the game starts‚ and you see (which referee) comes out to warm up‚ you’ve got to be prepared for it. Stats will tell you‚ more than anything‚ it is not going to be football‚ it’s going to somebody else who will steal the show.” 
 
Benni McCarthy, Gavin Hunt, Eric Tinkler and others have also criticised referees at different points this season.

According to PSL, it's mandatory to applause PSL & their employees even when they aren't doing their jobs satisfactory; it's a crime to stand for the truth. That's oppression at its most worst.

It's embarrassing to hear almost every week complaints about Refs. What are they doing to rectify that. It looks like they're just waiting for negative comments, so that they can be fined. It's obvious this Mr Barker is only listening to the Coaches comments & not the game

@HAND TO HAND, Prof Komphela also criticise referees, is just that he use diplomatic and philosophical language. Illiterate PSL leadership don't understand him.

PSL needs to jack up their officials really, why always the coaches complain about referees if the PSL feel that referees are doing good job? and the PSL is quick to charge the coaches. To me that's not fair for the coaches because the same referees are the ones contributing to the loss of coaches jobs. Come the end of the season the same referees will be awarded as the referees of the year/season and yet they were very poor in their jobs. Common sense the league should tell them, look gents this year/season your referring was not up to standard so there is no referee deserved to win that. Donate the money to charity and send the trophy back to sponsors.

@Sobz Ndabs, Tinkler is also criticising referee, but he is not called upon to account. PSL is out of order.

Freedom of speech doesn't apply in football, isn't?????. Someone should just keep quite. maybe it's time freedom of speech apply in soccer as well because it seems in soccer, people are still fastened in chains.
