South Para FC complain of poor refereeing


FAZ division one South Paramilitary Football Club (Para FC) has complained of alleged biased refereeing during week 27 league game in which the team lost to Livingstone Pirates 1-0.

Senior coach Amos Saili complained that the game which his team lost one nil to Pirates was not a fair play.

Saili told the Daily Nation in Livingstone that the biasness was seen from the beginning where all the officials were Livingstone-based.

He claimed that his team was supposed to have been awarded a penalty to equalize but the referee  completely ignored the foul which was committed in the 18 circle.

“The biasness was already seen from the way the referee was officiating but I can assure you these people are destroying the game. You saw for yourself, that the officials from Southern Province are biased.“

But Pirates chairman Bimaele Phiri said that some coaches in division one south were fond of blaming match officials whenever they lost a game.

Phiri said that the best way to complain was to put up a good team that could bring results instead of blaming match officials.

Phiri who is Shalom Buses Southern Province manager praised his team for collecting maximum points..

He said his team had improved radically from the way it was playing during the first half and was quick to implore players to continue working hard.
