Ngezi Platinum Stars coach Benjani Mwaruwari has become the latest coach to publicly criticised the performance of referees in the Castle Lager Premiership,as
he feels some decisions in the past three games have cost them points.
Speaking after his team played to a 1-1 draw against Black Rhinos on Saturday, the coach believes the penalty that was given to their opponents was too harsh for them.
“Referees are human beings, they make mistakes, and so far, they have made mistakes on three occasions which have cost us points,” the gaffer said.
Benjani’s thoughts come at a time local match officials have been criticised by several coaches.
In the previous round, Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas and his Highlanders counterpart Mandla Mpofu hit out at the performance of the match officials during their derby encounter at Barbourfields Stadium.
The PSL also implored the ZIFA Referees Committee to seriously look into the poor performances of the officials.
