Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa has urged the PSL to employ match officials on a permanent basis, claiming part-timers cannot be trusted to do the job properly.
De Sa has had his fair share of altercations with referees over the years, with the tactician having even entered this season still serving a suspension for a clash with the man in the middle last term.
That saw him miss his side's MTN8 quarter-final win over Orlando Pirates a fortnight ago, although De Sa was again involved in a fiery exchange of words with assistant referee Zakhele Siwela after the 1-1 draw against Wits in the next round.
The incident is still under investigation, with De Sa alleging the referee flipped him a crude hand signal.
"Since the 2010 World Cup there has been a massive improvement in the reporting and coverage of the game. The stadiums are world-class and the clubs have jacked up," De Sa told KickOff.
"The one area that we have lagged behind I believe is that the officials should be full-time professionals.
"I think there is enough money and we should focus on it. When it becomes professional they become accountable.
"I think some of them are very good, for others it is a part-time thing. You can't have part-timers in a multi-million rand industry."
