Kaizer Chiefs were able to snatch a late draw against Amazulu FC at the Jonsson Park Stadium in Durban, KZN. Kaizer Chiefs were given a late penalty by match referee Jelly Chavani and Amazulu's players and technical team were far from being happy by the referee's dubious decision. Kaizer Chiefs were able to secure one point from the match against Amazulu FC, and they moved upwards from 13th position on the PSL log standings. Image credit: Twitter
The match took a turn for the worst when a ball was delivered by Kaizer Chiefs striker Lebogang Manyama in the final third of Amazulu's pitch. The Kaizer Chiefs striker tried to deliver a cross into Amazulu's 18-yard area. The ball hit the shoulder of the Amazulu's defender and the referee took a little bit of time to award a penalty. Many football fans didn't agree with the referee's decision, but Kaizer Chiefs converted the penalty and sealed a late draw. Image credit: Twitter
The referee missed a lot of things leading up to the penalty. Firstly, Kaizer Chiefs striker Lebogang Manyama handled the ball outside the 18-yard area, and it should have been awarded as a handball against the Kaizer Chiefs player. Secondly, it was not a penalty because the Amazulu defender had both hands around his body. The ball didn't even hit his hands, but it hit his shoulders. Amazulu FC head coach Benni McCarthy was not happy about the referee's decision that cost his team all three points. Image credit: Twitter
We believe the referee robbed Amazulu of a clear win towards the end of the match, and he didn't make a spot on the decision. The match referee took several seconds before he could award the penalty. We believe he was notified by the linesman, because the match referee was not interested in the decision to award Kaizer Chiefs with a penalty. It was not a penalty for Kaizer Chiefs, but a handball against them. The PSL should starting apply for a VAR system as time goes on and it was needed in the encounter between Kaizer Chiefs and Amazulu. Image credit: Twitter
