Makola was only shown a yellow card in the game. Comitis explains that this is Makola’s case, and it his him appealing not the club. But Comitis says the club is 100% behind him and will support him against what they believe is an over-the-top punishment.
Comitis says they will continue to support the player, and he is training as per usual with the team.
Comitis says that with so many controversial decisions and cases facing the DC this season, he feels that Makola may have been made an example of.
Comitis says that something needs to be done and perhaps the powers-that-be need to look at bringing in a few foreign referees.
The City Chairman says that of course V.A.R also needs to be considered.
Comitis says though that they still need to look at the financial implications of V.A.R, and while the PSL has just announced profits of over a billion, it is a total amount earned over a long period of time.
