The South African Football Association (Safa) has started investigating allegations of match manipulation in the national women’s league.

In a statement, Safa say they have noted complaints on social media, which say coaches and players in the Provincial Women’s League made allegations of biased refereeing in one of the qualification matches.

Banyana Banyana player Noko Matlou was one of the people who took to Twitter to express their unhappiness about how a certain referee handled their match.

In her tweet, Matlou labelled Safa referees, working in Limpopo as “useless and corrupt”.

“Safa has also received complaints from the aggrieved parties and has instituted a thorough investigation into the matter and will work speedily to get to the bottom of the issue in time for the National Championships.

“This matter will be dealt with in accordance with the Safa Statutes and Regulations without any favour or prejudice to any of the parties involved,” read a statement on the Safa website.
