Dynamos’ Pat Malabela becomes a “referee”

Pat Malabela believes that bad refereeing is what kills the National First Division following his decision to end their match against Polokwane City on Wednesday

Dynamos owner Patrick Malabela could find himself in hot water following his decision to end the match in stoppage time when his team was playing against Polokwane City in a league game on Wednesday afternoon.

Malabela told Metro FM that there were suspicious decisions taken by the officials against his team and believes that Dynamos’ should have been given what he thought was a legitimate goal in the same game.

He also believes that the penalty given to Polokwane City against Dynamos occurred outside the box, and it wasn’t supposed to be a penalty.

The match  was abandoned in the 89th minute when Malabela entered the field and asked his players to leave the field immediately after Polokwane had scored the penalty.

PSL has since confirmed that the decision will be taken once the Match Commissioner and the referee have submitted their match reports.

The National First Division (NFD) fixture between Dynamos FC and Polokwane City FC was abandoned this afternoon, 10 April 2013, in Giyani,” reads the statement released by the PSL.

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) will await a full report from the Match Commissioner and the referee before deciding on the next step,” the statement reads.
