Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune criticised the level of officiating in the PSL after being sent off in his side's 1-0 win over AmaZulu on Thursday night.
Khune was dismissed late in the League game - which also produced nine yellow cards - after receiving two cautions in quick succession from referee Phillip Tinyane at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The Bafana Bafana net-minder was first booked for time-wasting before being given his marching orders for showing dissent at the decision.
Khune later tweeted to the official account of the PSL, saying: “@OfficialPSL but I did nothing wrong.u guys need to take action against this poor referees.
“Its about time action is taken against this referees by @OfficialPSL. They've been very poor since beginning of the season.
“Its unfair how we are painted bad for our actions on de field but we are provoked by these referees, can call me names but I stand 4 what's right.”
