Cheslyn Jampies (TEAMtalk)

Cape Town - Jomo Cosmos boss Jomo Sono admits that Cheslyn Jampies deserved the red card he received in the 5-0 loss to Orlando Pirates on Saturday night.

The defender lunged into a tackle on Thabo Matlaba with both feet, for which referee Victor Gomes gave a straight dismissal.

With Cosmos having been reduced to 10-men, Sono conceded that their game-plan was derailed after the incident.

The veteran coach believes Jampies got too excited by his Bafana Bafana call-up, with coach Shakes Mashaba watching the match in the stands.

"The early red card destroyed all our plans. They tried their best but it was not easy," Sono told SuperSport.

"You can't come here and play a team like Pirates and after 10 minutes you get a red card, it's going to be difficult; you make it difficult for the other players.

"It's a two-footed tackle - it's a red card! Definitely, it's a red card. This Bafana Bafana can either break him or make him...Bafana Bafana. He goes in with a two-footed tackle - why?

"There's no danger; there's no goalposts; he's not going to score. It's up to him."
