Khanye Weighs In On Rayners’ Offside Goal

Former Kaizer Chiefs winger Junior Khanye believes Stellenbosch FC were robbed of a goal in their 2-1 Nedbank Cup semi-final defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns at a packed Danie Craven Stadium.

Sundowns were leading through a Khuliso Mudau strike at the time when Stellies won a set-piece and Rayners scored from a Fawaaz Basadien pass but it was disallowed for offside in the 39th minute.

The decision had fans on social media divided, with most saying it was not the right call by match officials, however Khanye believes Rayners’s goal should have stood.

“Rayners there wasn’t much from him in this game because he relies on speed,” said Khanye on iDiski TV.

“Just like I said Stellenbosch were not themselves today, they were supposed to score [more] in this game and another thing the referee denied them a goal, the goal that Rayners scored.

“But I can’t blame him because Rayners was on the right and there was someone behind him. Maybe the referee or the lines-man couldn’t see the line but that for me was a goal.

“I think Rayners was on side.”
