Former Bafana Bafana skipper Neil Tovey insists nothing will come out of the appeal his country is planning to do.
FIFA threw a protest lodged by the Rainbow nation against Ghana away following a 1-0 world cup qualifier defeat.
South Africa still maintains they have a valid case and are ready to seek redress but heir ex captain says they have no case.
“Unless you can prove he has taken a bribe you will not get that decision in your favour.” He told the Press in South Africa
“It’s extremely difficult to get a ruling on the referee’s decision unless you can prove he has taken a bribe.”
“I can’t advise SAFA, I’m not in a position to do that and Danny Jordaan is clued up enough as he is part of Fifa.”
“What I think, is that they don’t have a chance with an appeal. It’s very seldom you get a favourable decision unless you can prove they have taken a bribe.”
“But even with the bad decisions of the referee, you can’t change the results.”
“However the referee could still be punished for his bad decisions by not being chosen to officiate in the Afcon or even the 2022 World Cup.”
“But for Bafana Bafana and SAFA, the decision will not be overturned.”He added.
Tovey was the skipper when the Bafana Bafana won the AFCON 1996 on home soil.
