Bidvest Wits defender Bongani Khumalo dreams of fair play after loss to Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 10 February 2016 Time: 12:05

Bidvest Wits defender Bongani Khumalo says he dreams of a day when fair play is universal following the 1-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs last night.

Wits went down 1-0 to their title rivals, with Students coach Gavin Hunt insisting there was only side in the contest at Bidvest Stadium. 

The former SuperSport United boss also felt his team were denied a "blatant penalty" by referee Victor Gomes.

Khumalo says a number of things have shocked him since he returned to the country in the off-season from a five-year spell in Europe.

Khumalo told SuperSport after the game: "I dream of a time whereby you know you can challenge and challenge with a bit of fairness.

"I dream of a time where we will be judged fairly, no matter who you play, no matter who you come up against, no matter what the situation is.

"Today we didn't get much going our way, but what are you gonna do? We played football, we tried to do our best, we tried to be disciplined and we didn't get anything.

"I thought we did not deserve to lose the game at all. But again, I dream of a world where there is a bit of fair... fair play."

The ex-Tottenham Hotspur man added: "We had a very good opening 45 minutes, and second half they hardly had a sniff really. It's honestly... I am dumbfounded, I'm lost for words.

"It's a cruel game. Things happen, sometimes you get decisions, sometimes you don't. Obviously me coming back, I've been shocked at a lot of things but anyways, life goes on."
