Free State Stars coach Luc Eymael believes Cape Town City’s winning goal against his team should not have stood.

City’s winning goal was scored by Taariq Fielies five minutes from time at Athlone Stadium on Wednesday night.

However, Eymael says Stars goalkeeper Badra Sangare was fouled and therefore the goal should not have stood.

“If there was no foul on the keeper there‚ then I know nothing in football,” said Eymael after the match.

“It’s two games in a row that there is a bad decision against us‚ that’s not normal. I’m very disappointed about that‚ I don’t want to use words that I will perhaps regret‚ but I don’t think these things are fair.

“What I am saying about the goal is not an excuse‚ it’s a fact. I am always analysing things with honesty and with fair play.”

Stars’ next game is against Chippa United at home on November 22.
