Mosimane makes a plea to football authorities


Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane made a request to football authorities following their 2-0 Absa Premiership defeat to Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday.

The Brazilians coach insisted that although he felt that the match officials, who were officiating their match favoured Chiefs, he also benefited in some areas, pointing out that they are not doing their duties correctly.

“First they must get the spray, then goal-line technology and then third thing should be the communication (between match officials). It was there against Chiefs, but against AmaZulu there was no communication,” said Mosimane as quoted by SoccerLaduma.

Amakhosi striker Samir Nurkovic scored a brace for his side with the first goal argued to be offside by Mosimane.

“Then we go to VAR. The last one is to pray, especially when you play this team so that they must never benefit again. The odds are always against you to win. But the referee was good with the fouls. But when they played against Cape Town City they were let go, hence Benni (McCarthy) is still crying.

The 55-year-old coach admitted that the referee was abit lenient to midfielder Hlompho Kekana saying that he should have been handed a red card for the foul hence he urges football authorities to introduce new ways of impartiality in the field.

“Everyone received the yellow cards, and maybe Hlompho (Kekana) should have had a red card. We have to say the positives also. We know these match officials. My last eight games of the league I also need people to make mistakes – I am waiting. When I benefit I will tell you and admit,” said Mosimane.
