SAFPU Weighs In On Makola's Lengthy Ban  

The South African Football Players Union weighed in on the lengthy ban handed to Mpho Makola, saying that it could set a bad precedent. 

Two weeks ago, Makola was handed a six-month ban from football by the Premier Soccer League after he was found guilty of assaulting match referee Abongile Tom, during Cape Town City’s match with Kaizer Chiefs in October.

The Citizens have been angered by the judgement handeed to the 33-year-old, and have vowed to appeal the decision.   

Makola was shown only a yellow card for the incident on the day, though he was later handed a lengthy ban after appearing before the PSL’s Disciplinary Committee.

According to SAFPU, Makola’s incident ‘has the potential to set a wrong precedence', if it is left as it is.

“After receiving the report & engaging both the player & manager, our view is that this matter has the potential to set a wrong precedence if not appealed. Furthermore, we are convinced that legally there are higher prospects of success in the matter & justice must be pursued,” SAFPU weighed in on Twitter.
