Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has sensationally claimed that Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs receive favourable decisions from referees.
Masandawana survived a second-half onslaught from Black Leopards to claim a hard-fought 2-1 victory at Thohoyandou Stadium on Wednesday evening.
In a post-match interview, Mosimane hit out at being denied a penalty in the tightly-contested game while claiming that Ernst Middendorp's side always seems to be given penalties.
"I think we should have got a penalty," Mosimane said. "New rules say that when the hand is up in the box you must blow.
"The referee chickened out, to be honest, he's going according to the old rules. I've suffered twice, with AJ against Bloemfontein Celtic they gave the penalty.
"When it comes to (Kaizer) Chiefs it's always a penalty. When it's against Chiefs it's always a penalty, it was a penalty against Chiefs even yesterday.
"I must get a penalty also.
Mosimane then claimed the Soweto giants were receiving the rub of the green by referees that is swaying the title race.
"Chiefs is benefiting from all the mistakes of referees, it's not about Chiefs but I'm highlighting the realities. Yes, it is true, no matter what it is true.
"But I like the referee, he's a young up and coming referee but today he chickened out."
