Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) prosecutor has written to Polokwane City and head coach Zlatko Krmpotic in relation to the comments attributed to him on match officials.

The League prosecutor has given Krmpotic five days to respond to the letters sent to him to either deny or admit the comments attributed to him in the media.

The Polokwane City coach accused referee Victor Gomes of being one-sided during his team's defeat on penalties to Highlands Park in the MTN8 semifinal on September 17.

"But I must say, this referee and the decisions he made in three to five crucial moments - in the first half not giving a penalty for us, and after that in every position where it’s dangerous for Highlands Park giving a counter-foul - didn’t allow us to play this game.

"One example was in the final minute, when he gave a yellow card for Jabu Maluleke. What happened there? First he gave us a free kick and afterwards changed the decision and gave a booking [to City]. This is not normal.

"When you play against the opponent and also against the referee, this is very hard.

"But OK, I don’t want to complain now about the referee. We must do better, and we should have taken this game inside 90 minutes," he added.
