Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane remains concerned that Gaston Sirino still does not know his fate as the club awaits a sanction from the Premier Soccer League after the midfielder was found guilty of assault.
Sirino had initially been charged for slapping the SuperSport United duo of Clayton Daniels and captain Dean Furman during their MTN8 fixtures as far back as September 18 last year.
It was on February 20 – more than three weeks ago, the PSL disciplinary committee confirmed punishment would be delivered after all parties involved had finalised submissions.
But the football fraternity is still waiting, a big worry for Mosimane for the remainder of the season, when the campaign does eventually resume after it was suspended today by chairman Irvin Khoza due to the coronavirus.
“We might not have Sirino, and you know when these things come – in the last few games then it’s there. Why doesn’t it happen earlier? But it’s waiting, it’s there, you will see it, it will come,” Mosimane told the media.
He then suggested PSL prosecutor Nande Becker was at fault for the delay.
“I don’t know what Nande Becker wants to do. That guy, I don’t know. I don’t want to be in trouble, but let’s leave it to Nande Becker. Let’s let Masandawana focus – I still think even if Sirino is not there we can still do something,” the coach said.
Sundowns are four points away from Absa Premiership log leaders Kaizer Chiefs and have a game in hand as they look to retain the championship.
