AFC Leopards coach Patrick Aussems has joined the list of Kenyan coaches blaming poor officiating in the Premier League.

“I squarely put the blame for my team’s 2-1 defeat by Bandari on poor officiating. Kenyan referees are killing Kenyan football as they are incompetent,” Aussems said after his team lost at Mbaraki Sports Club on Sunday.

 A number coaches had earlier raised concern over the level of officiating during the league matches. “I confronted the officials a number of times to demand for fair officiating. The referee made dubious calls,” Aussems said.
