Chippa United coach Teboho Moloi has apologised for insinuating Kaizer Chiefs are often favoured by the officials.
The Orlando Pirates legend took aim at Chiefs after his side lost 1-0 to Amakhosi in the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on November 5.
He told SuperSport TV at the time: "I'm not one to complain about referees or officiating. I'm a baby. I'm crawling. I'm still new in this field. So for me to complain about officiating is not right.
"I'm not going to complain. The only thing I'm going to say is that I remember in my playing days 1987-1992 when we lost against Kaizer Chiefs this is how we used to lose.
"If I'm going to lose games in this way then I'm still learning. I expect to lose with the opposition really coming at me, coming with tactical plans, that I'll accept. But I have to accept because I grew up knowing that the only way Chiefs could beat me is through this way.
"It's part of the game, we grow up. This is what I want my team to learn. We have to take it even if it's a pill that is hard to swallow but take it like I'm taking it. There's nothing we can do."
He has since said sorry.
"I would like to withdraw the comments I made against Kaizer Chiefs in relation to my playing days. The statement was made in the heat of the moment."
