Why FIFA Banned Mathoho & Fined Him R70,000

FIFA Banned Erick Mathoho & Fined Him Around R70,000

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 02, 2017 10:00 AM
Football’s global governing body, FIFA, has added a further game to Erick Mathoho’s Bafana Bafana suspension for ‘committing an act of unsporting conduct’.
 
 
Mathoho was sent off in the first World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde last month after lashing out at one of his opponents despite being out of the field, and while he served a one-game ban automatically, FIFA has now added another game to it.
 
The decision means that Stuart Baxter has had to drop ‘Tower’ as he serves the second game of his suspension in the clash with Burkina Faso, calling up Mamelodi Sundowns’ Motjeka Madisha as his replacement.
 
SAFA sent out a press release detailing the rules that the Kaizer Chiefs man breached that led to the extended ban and fine of around R70,000. 
 
 
The communication from FIFA said:
 
“Erick Mathoho is regarded as having breached art. 48 par. 1 c) of the FIFA Disciplinary Code by committing an act of unsporting conduct against an opponent in the scope of the match played between the representative teams Cape Verde Islands and South Africa on 1 September 2017 within the frame of the Preliminary Competition for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.
 
“The player Erick Mathoho is suspended for two matches including the automatic match suspension, which was served in the match played between the representative teams of South Africa and Cape Verde Islands on 5 September 2017. The following match suspension has to be served during the match to be played between the representative teams of South Africa and Burkina Faso, scheduled on 7 October 2017.
 
“The player is ordered to pay a fine in the amount of CHF 5,000 in accordance with art.10 c) and art. 15 of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee (FDC).”
 
Bafana have already started assembling for camp in Johannesburg ahead of the must-win clash with Burkina Faso.

everyone keeps having their way with south Africa , in CAF competition , it's either they don't provide PSL teams with training ground , or they cut tv cables on live matches . further more they don't provide proper hotels for our teams . but when they come to mzansi , we give them 5 star hotels in sandton , give them the likes of rand stadium just for training . to think it was worse when they took points away from bafana which we got senegal , they even order a replay of that match , but eric kicks a goat which was wasting time , he gets a ban and a fine , the goats from africa they know how to waste time , but nothing is ever been done to them . tower just give them the 70 000 they desperately need and get over it , don't bother apologising , I forgave you long ago. fifa is just ridiculous

Why not ban that Giraffe for 10 months because he is a curse to Bafana Bafana's fortunes.
