AmaZulu Confused About Spitting Incident Charge
AmaZulu Seek Clarity On Decision Against Midfielder
AmaZulu confirmed being confused about the charges brought against their player over an alleged spitting incident in a recent official PSL game.
AmaZulu’s Michael Morton was involved in a spitting incident with Gabadinho Mhango of Bidvest Wits in an Absa Premiership game for the two sides at King Zwelithini Stadium on September 20.
The league has since confirmed that Mhango has been charged with misconduct for his alleged spitting incident on Morton. The Malawian is set to appear before the PSL’s DRC next week.
Morton was shown a red card by referee Welcome Setloboko for retaliation, following the alleged spitting incident during that game. However, the PSL has since confirmed that Morton is set to also appear before the DRC for ‘allegedly offending the dignity of Mhango’, following the spitting incident.
Contacted for comment, AmaZulu’s media officer Brilliant Mkhathini told the Siya crew that the Durban-based club is in the dark on why the team’s central midfielder has been charged by the league.
Having already missed the game against Platinum Stars before the FIFA international break, Morton is now left with one game to complete his two-match suspension for the red card.
“For now, for us, it’s just for him (Morton) to relax a bit and focus on his game. He’s alright. It’s just that he is as confused as you. We don’t know what the intent was from the PSL’s side. The player is okay. He’s served his suspension for the red card, and I think there’s just one more game left. We need him ready for the next game. We’ll go through the hearing,” concluded the Usuthu official.
As confirmed by the league, the two players are set to appear before the PSL’s DRC on October 18.
