Stoichkov slams 'corrupt' PSL

Hristo Stoichkov slams 'corrupt' PSL

Posted: 21 February 2010 Time: 11:08 pm

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Hristo Stoichkov has labeled the PSL a 'corrupt' organisation.

Stoichkov’s scathing attack comes after his team failed in their appeal to have their League match against Moroka Swallows restarted from scratch on Friday evening.

This after the match was called off after 35 minutes – with Sundowns 2-0 down – due to a power failure at Super Stadium on Wednesday evening.

_quote The game eventually finished an exciting 3-3 draw, which proved to be crippling blow to the Brazilians’ aspirations for the League title.

“Is the PSL the state? Too many people don’t understand soccer in the PSL. There is no clean service. There is too much corruption,” Stoichkov said.

“There is no respect for the players; there is too much corruption in soccer … too much!”

But despite the draw all but giving SuperSport United a third successive title, Stoichkov was happy with his players’ fighting display, saying: “I’m happy with the boys. We will play the championship [CAF Champions League] next year.”

Has it ever happened anywhere in the world whereby one team had to 4f8t its goals just due to the postponement of the game?

Next time Stoichkov, make sure that no team scores b4 ur team and make sure u always get early goals to avoid such situations.

That's how we do the talking. In the field of play not over newspaper.

they said ace ncobo was talking kak, but if so why is it that this statement keeps coming up..?

this guy must come up with facts, it seems like he knows something.. he is correct psl is not the state..it is only admin company for soccer, so like malema it is possible that corruption exists there, cant wait for safa investigation..

Even where you come from Skhova, there is corruption in soccer. Even Blatter is vying for a third term in FIFA because he has seen that there is oil in soccer. The good thing for you Skhova is to take a return ticket and coach in your own country.

Stoichkov stop blaming other people for your failure. Let's say the lights didn't went off, were u going to protest that the second half must start from scratch?? To tell u the truth, in that match u failed dismally, your game plan didn't work, u played kak, and that was seen when u played draw with Santos, droping 2 valuable points. Now don't come here and blame the psl while u played kak u moron.

surprising,very surprising.as for me i knew supersport were going to emerge victorious and yeah that they'll do with just one more win.

as for sundowns they have themselves to blame,Psl said in a statement that it was a man's fault one gud resn why the game will not be restarted.if sundowns where as professional as they claim to be they would be in position of all the laws and regulations according to psl and they would have fought the moment santos game was said to be a restart,and there,they want to fight now and the worse part after drawing(thanx to nomvete trying to show brian what he can stil do).hardluck sandawana,Mr Motsepe the billionaire tried but he failed.hope this guy doesnt die of heart attack.

i've been thinking,why psl dont introduced award for the best goal celebration(voted by fans).i so love mbuyane's celebration.....pity he also falls under the pie-rats....the team has crus darkness in it...

O ya hlanya enwa jwale. He wanted to win the league by default. Why did't he say this things when other teams goals were disallowed and playas send-off. He was lucky the game was abandoned that night. He was going to get 4-0...

as stoichkov says 'there are too many people who don't understand soccer...' just like some comments here.
1. the game was called off due to a FLOODLIGHT FAILURE - which is a man made fault. the official gave the power failure some time but it never got working, hence match called off. remember what happened at orlando with the mtn8 final?
2. the match against santos was called off as there was still lightning when the power died, LIGHTNING, nature's fault was to blame, nature takes precedence.
3. where was stoichkov and the rest of sundowns when celtics was robbed of it's two LEGITIMATE goals. How easily we forget.
4. Sundowns stop complaining when it suits u.

Nka mo dira the game between sundowns & Santos was called off because of heavy rain & thunderstorm,and this one of Swallows was because of bad lights.According to the Psl this are 2 different incidents and when there is a replay you have to buy another ticket if the game was stopped due to a natural cause like rain & thunderstorm.
