Kaizer Chiefs defender, Morgan Gould, was recently convicted by the Premier Soccer League's Disciplinary Committee for striking Wits striker, Getaneh Kebede, in the face with a punch. The DC fined the defender R100 000 and suspended him for two matches. R50 000 of the fine was suspended for one year on condition he doesn't repeat the same offence within 12 months.
In addition, news reaching the Siya crew is that Chiefs have also levied their own sanction on the 30-year-old for his apparent unprovoked assault on Kebede. The club's official website are reporting that Chiefs' management have given the defender a further R50 000 fine as well as a one game suspension.
The player appears to have taken the punishment by his club in the right spirit. He later posted on his official Twitter account that he was eager to put this incident behind him and concentrate on his football. Nonetheless, the Soweto-born star is still R100 000 out of pocket for his indiscretion.
It seems he also won't be available because of suspension for Chiefs' next matches against Polokwane City and Free State Stars. It's unclear at this stage whether Chiefs will ban the player for a further game thereafter or will allow the one game suspension they gave him to be included in the PSL's two game ban.
If Chiefs do ban him for a further game he could miss the big clash with Mamelodi Sundowns on December 10.
The Siya crew will keep tabs on the situation.
