South African international Dino Ndlovu is unhappy with the state of refereeing during his club Qarabag's UEFA Champions League match against Chelsea.
Azerbaijan champions Qarabag suffered a 4-0 defeat to the English champions at the Baku Olympic Stadium with Chelsea receiving two penalties during the Group C game on Wednesday.
Ndlovu has since taken to the club’s social media account to express his frustrations. He was also given a red card against Spanish giants Atletico Madrid for an apparent dive in a Group C match.
"It was a good game in the first 20 minutes, but the referee solved the problem for us. I cannot blame anyone though, it's futile, anything can happen," he said.
“What can we do? It’s a good experience for the team, make no mistake. I'm not a UEFA official, I do not want to talk about refereeing.
"It's not my problem, but they did what they did… We get red cards in the Champions League games," the 27-year-old continued.
"And I do not understand the reason, maybe because we're a small club, so I'm sorry."
