Ngezi Platinum coach Rodwell Dhlakhama was left furious with the match officials following their 1-0 defeat to Highlanders in the 2019 Chibuku Super Cup final played at Barbourfields Stadium on Saturday.

Dhlakama feels the near side assistant referee, Salani Ncube, robbed them after awarding Prince Dube a first half goal which he thinks didn’t cross the line. The Bosso striker hit from a range and crashed his effort against the cross-bar before it took a bounce.

Ncube approved the goal and referee Brighton Chimene pointed to the centre.

Speaking after the game, the Ngezi Platinum coach said: “The ball did not even cross the line, it hit the bar, came back into play and the referee had to give that goal. Where have you seen a goal given like that in this world?”

Ngezi were playing in their second Chibuku Super Cup final, having featured in the 2016 edition where they won it.
