Dan Malesela says young refs must work with coaches

TS Galaxy Head Coach Dan Malesela has made an earnest appeal to the young referees plying their trade in South Africa to not be combative with coaches on the sidelines. Malesela has joined the chorus from coaches around the country who have spoken about the disappointing officiating in the country, but he says that if referees are to improve, everyone needs to work together to make that happen. Malesela says a lot of these young referees are still learning the game, and they need to rely on experienced campaigners to guide them. Malesela says in most cases when coaches complain from the sidelines, they genuinely believe there was a wrong decision and better communication will help.
