South Africa international Dino Ndlovu has bemoaned the state of refereeing during his club Qarabag’s Uefa Champions League encounter against Chelsea.
Qarabag were once again at the end of a thumping as they lost 4-0 to the English Premier League Champions, and in the aftermath of another disappointing result for the Azerbaijani’s where The Blues were awarded two penalties, the 27-year-old was visibly disappointed.
Ndlovu took to the club’s social media account to express his frustrations, suggesting that the referees had played a role in Qarabag’s elimination from the competition. Ndlovu himself has previously been on the wrong end of a referee’s fury as he was given a red card against Atletico Madrid for an apparent dive.
“It was a good game in the first 20 minutes, but the referee solved the problem for us. I cannot blame anyone though, it’s futile, anything can happen,” Ndlovu lamented on Qarabag’s Facebook account.
“What can we do? It’s a good experience for the team, make no mistake. I’m not a UEFA official, I do not want to talk about refereeing. It’s not my problem, but they did what they did… We get red cards in the Champions League games, and I do not understand the reason, maybe because we’re a small club, so I’m sorry,” he concluded.
