We made Abdul eat humble pie - Mosimane

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach has hit out at SAFA head of referees Abdul Ebrahim following his statement on a Chippa United goal being disallowed against Kaizer Chiefs. 


Newly appointed head of referees, Abdul Ebrahim rushed to the defence of his referees after they came under fire for an incident involving eventual runners-up up Kaizer Chiefs and Mosimane has since aired his opinion on the matter.


"Abdul Ebrahim, that guy, I though it's that guy who is a musician with Mannenberg. Do you know the song Mannenberg?" Mosimane said.


"I said, 'Who is this guy?' But I realised this guy didn't talk about the Baroka goal that Orlando Pirates conceded. That was an offside. It was us against Polokwane City when Gaston [Sirino] scored that goal, he didn't complain about it. He went to Kaizer Chiefs. I don't know. He wants to be famous. He wants to be known.


"I think we made him eat humble [pie] tonight. That's football for you. He must comment about other goals that Sundowns didn't get. I don't know why he goes to Chiefs. What's wrong with him? I mean last time there was another debate about that goal that touched [Leonardo] Castro's head and they chose Sundowns against Chiefs, and all the time for Chiefs, why?

"What about those people who might be relegated and missed top eight and all that?. There have been many mistakes that referees have done in the bubble. We all saw. We all see.


"I can complain about the penalty I didn't get, and by the way I think Chiefs should have got a penalty against Wits. I believe the goal of Baroka stands. That's my opinion. There have been so many ups and downs.


"So sometimes I do complain, yes, but I also have to be objective to say, 'You know what, there has been a lack of consistency.' What I am disappointed in is this Abdul Ebrahim. I mean he wants to be famous or what? Who is this guy?"


Ebrahim replaced Tenda Musikhwa as the association's head of referees in 2020.
