Teams complain of poor refereeing in PPFL

KARACHI: Participating teams have registered complaints about the refereeing during the Pakistan Premier Football League.

According to Wapda coach Sharafat Ali, the referees are prone to favouritism and have made various poor decisions.

“PPFL needs better referees,” a team official told The Express Tribune.

“Every team has issues with them, not only because of the decisions that go against them but also because they give in to pressure from the spectators. In Balochistan, we’re threatened and the referees are told to take decisions in favour of the home teams or else they would be killed.”
