Bidvest Wits explain CAF Confederation Cup exit


Wits bowed out of the CAF Confederation Cup in the group stages on Sunday following a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Guinean side Horoya.

Club official Jonathan Schloss says poor officiating in Africa makes the CAF competitions difficult to win.

"We are disappointed, we wanted to do well," Schloss tells

"We wanted to make the knockout stages. I think we played well on the weekend, I mean we had a red card that wasn't a red card, we had a penalty against us that wasn't a penalty.

"I think CAF games are very difficult because it's not only about the team you are playing against sometimes."

Asked if by that he meant one also plays against the match officials, he agreed.

"Ja," he said. "I'm saying it was very good for the team, the players gained a lot of experience. As a club we gained a lot of experience."

"Are disappointed not to get to qualify for the knockout stages? Yes, we are. I mean we want to compete and we will try again."
