Kaizer Chiefs' poor start to the season continues
Stars were awarded a controversial goal, which, through replays, showed that it had not crossed the line.
JOHANNESBURG - Kaizer Chiefs' poor start to the season continued after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Platinum Stars.
Stars were awarded a controversial goal by Robert Ngambi, which, through replays, showed that it had not crossed the line.
Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says perhaps it's time goal line technology is introduced in the PSL.
"But clearly this would have been dealt with in a better manner had it been that we had goal-line technology.
"And looking at the product in the PSL, I think the game has gone to the whole high level that we also have to keep up the standards that are on the verge of whatever it is because it's a huge setback because we've just dropped two points."
Komphela says goal-line technology could go a long way to saving him.
"One does not want to complain but you could put up a case and say you could hardly ignore that. Make a recommendation, it could work. It will save our jobs and it will save our lives."
Stars coach Cavin Johnson admits that the goal was falsely awarded.
"Yes the goal I think when I also passed the screens. Now they say it wasn't a goal."
Johnson says he wouldn't mind the introduction of goal-line technology.
"I think the modern game calls for that and if the Champions League can do it, I don't know if the Spanish league is doing because the Italian league is doing it now. But it was a test and the test was the Champions League.
"After that we've got to go to the mother body, we've to go to the grandmother body, which is Fifa, and if they introduce that, I'm up for it."
