Posta Rangers coach John Kamau has leapt to the defence of match officials, saying players should control their emotions during matches

Posta Rangers head coach John Kamau has advised his players to learn how to control their emotions better after his captain Kennedy Owino was dismissed for a second bookable offence at full time during their 0-0 draw with KCB on Sunday.

Owino was dismissed right after the final whistle had blown when he had a go at the referee for his decision to book him for an infringement.

At halftime, Kamau was visibly furious, raising questions about whether he was upset about the referee’s ruling. However, he unexpectedly spoke out in favor of the match official.

“I was given a fair refereeing. For this situation, I will support the referee,” Kamau said, reacting to Owino’s red card.

“You get fouled as a player, the referee gives you a foul, then you should be content with that, but when you continue talking to the referee, you persist with the matter and carry on and get the second yellow card, that one I am in full support of the referee.”

Kamau has challenged his players to learn how to control their emotions better, saying potential national team players should not be behaving the way Owino did.

“They are playing here so that in future, they can feature in our national team and I think in the national team, you would not find something of that sort, so for me, it is a learning process for us,” he added.

“I think we should learn to control our emotions, especially for the player because the game against KCB was heated because it was end-to-end.

Posta Rangers sit top of the FKFPL on 21 points after 10 matches played. They lead Gor Mahia on just one point.

One game before the international break, this Friday’s matchup against AFC Leopards, will see them need to work hard to hold onto their lead due to the suspension of a key player.

They have the second-worst defense in the division and are the most prolific team in terms of goals scored, having scored 14 and given up five.
