The Nigerian was furious after he reckoned that his team was denied three clear penalties as Mohammedan Sporting went down 2-3 against Bengaluru FC...Abdul Aziz Moshood was livid with the proceedings at the Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata after his team lost out to Bengaluru FC in a five goal thriller with the coach blaming the referee for his side's loss.
Moshood did not hold back his emotions as he faced media and stated that the referees were killing him and had cost him 11 points in this year's I-League.
"The referee is killing me. We have lost a total of 11 points due to referring in this season's I-League."
Moshood also said the referring standards on the day were for all to see as he reckoned that three penalty decisions went against them.
"What do I need to say about this. It wasn't just that one penalty (referring to the early decision that was not given when Curtis Osano had shoved Penn Orji in the box) but it was three penalties that were not given. Everyone saw this."
When asked about whether his team failed to defend set-pieces in particular as all three Bengaluru FC goals came from corners, Moshood kept on talking about how it was the decisions that went against them which finally were decisive.
"Set-piece is a set-piece. Give us our chance. The realities are in front. If the refereeing continues to be like this, Indian football will never improve. The referee killed the game. I am aghast."
