Eric Tinkler becomes first coach to lash out at controversial referring decision this season

Cape Town City held their own against reigning league champions Mamelodi Sundowns in their season opener last Friday. 

But in the end, they fell short in the second half. It was a match that they could have walked away with a point. 

It was not be after Sundowns turned up the heat in the second half scoring two quick goals that killed the match off as a contest. 

But Cape Town City coach Eric Tinkler has lashed out at a controversial referring decision. 

Sundowns' first goal proved to be a source of consternation for City boss Eric Tinkler, however, who questioned the referee’s decision to award a free-kick despite awarding what he felt was ample advantage.

Tinkler believes that controversial goal was not supposed to stand and it proved to be their biggest downfall. 

"We didn't take our chances and when you don't take your chances against a quality team like Sundowns, you are eventually going to get punished," he said during his post-match press conference.

Do you agree with Tinkler on this one?
