Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Stuart Baxter, has been charged R5,700 by the PSL for entering the field of play while suspended back in May.
Baxter was given a two-game ban towards the end of last season as Chiefs closed in on their league title, forcing him to spend the climax of their season in the stands.
However, the PSL have stated that Baxter contravened Rule 51.7 of the NSL rules by entering into the field before the end of the game as his team wrapped up the title against SuperSport United on May 16.
A statement from the league read, “Baxter was charged with contravening Rule 51.7 following an incident which took place after a match between Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United on 16 May 2013 at Peter Mokaba Stadium when Baxter, whilst under suspension having been dismissed on 04 May 2013 in the Nedbank Cup fixture against United FC, entered the field of play subsequent to the finalization of the match. Baxter paid an admission of guilt fine of R5 700.00.”
Chiefs take on Mamelodi Sundowns tomorrow night as they attempt to extend their lead at the top of the PSL.
