SAFA Head of Referees comment on Zitha Kwinika yellow card against Sundowns

South African Football Association Head of Referees Abdul Ebrahim has given clarity on the controversial yellow card that was given to Zitha Kwinika against Mamelodi Sundowns. When Kaizer Chiefs defender Siyabonga Ngezana committed a foul inside the box Mamelodi Sundowns was given a penalty by Victor Gomez and the yellow card went to Zitha Kwinika instead of Siyabonga Ngezana.


According to Abdul Ebrahim the decision was correct to give Kwinika instead of Ngezane , this is because the Ngezane challenge was not a bookable offence , Kwinika was booked for dissent . This has left many football fans thinking the referee has made a wrong decision including Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane saying the wrong player was booked .


The penalty awarded to Mamelodi Sundowns was scored by Namibia international Peter Shalulile. Amakhosi later in the match got a penalty , Khama Billiat penalty saved by Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Ronwen Williams.
