Referee Ace Ncobo

Paramedic’s sending-off within rules

Paramedic’s sending-off within rules

Posted: 26 May 2010 Time: 11:56 am

PSL Chief Operations Officer Ronnie Schloss says that it was completely in referee Ace Ncobo’s rights to send off a paramedic in yesterday’s Nedbank Cup between Santos and Orlando Pirates at the Athlone Stadium.

During the second half of regulation time, assistant referee Siphiwe Jibiliza called over referee Ncobo, apparently to complain that he had been verbally abused by a paramedic.

After a hold-up to play of a couple of minutes, Ncobo’s reaction was to send the paramedic off the field.

Schloss says that he has no problem with the decision.

“It is completely within the referee’s right as it is within the laws of the game to take such action,” he told Kick Off.com.

Santos security officer Donnie Ronnie shed some more light on the matter.

“Apparently the paramedic was shouting at the linesman over an off-side decision. The linesman spoke to the referee and the man was taken off the field. Match Commissioner Pillay seemed to be of the opinion that it was an unnecessary step in sending the paramedic off.

“The boss of the paramedic company has phoned to apologise and as far as I know no further action will be taken at this stage,” said Ronnie.

Wena Tivano, your plumage belongs elsewhere and you should go fly far away from this forum. We r talking soccer here not your bullshit. Who cares if we dont understand our favourite language. Anyway, Ace was right, the guy suppose to be prf=offessional and i hope he is dogged some maney since he did not perform work for the day.

He must haev been a Pirate supporter, Tivani. I'm sure he was. Only they could behave like that, even swearing on this forum is the style of most of them. Haters!
