Two days after writing to Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane following comments attributed to him in the media in which he heavily criticised the match officials, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) has charged both the Brazilians and star midfielder Gaston Sirino for a different incident.
According to reports, the club and Sirino have been charged by the PSL for bringing the game into disrepute for an incident where the Uruguayan allegedly slapped SuperSport United captain Dean Furman.
The incident took place in the MTN8 semifinal second leg on September 18. Sirino seemed to lash out at both Clayton Daniels and Furman in a heated altercation during a game which Matsatsantsa would go on to win.
Sirino will appear before the PSL’s disciplinary committee (DC) on Monday, November 11 at 6pm.
Both Sundowns and Sirino have been charged with brining the game into disrepute.
The Brazilians will be in Telkom Knockout action this weekend as they travel to the Eastern Cape to take on Chippa United for a place in the semifinals.
