D-Day For Aces’ Khenyeza

Mpumalanga Black Aces are hoping that today’s arbitration will finally put the issue behind striker Mabhudi Khenyeza and the Premier Soccer League to rest, so that the player can focus on his game.

Khenyeza will appear before arbitrator today to hear the PSL’s appeal on his sentencing and Aces are hoping that the arbitrator will put the matter to rest today.“This case has been bugging Mabhudi for some time now. It has also affected his performances for the club, so we’re hoping that this thing can be laid to rest today,” Aces Media Liaison Officer, Gordon Masondo told the Siya crew.

“We’re praying that the arbitrator will rule in our favour because the previous sentence was a bit harsh on the player. He has shown his remorse and wants to continue playing football, so we hope he’ll be allowed to continue,” added Masondo. 

The 31-year-old striker was handed a 12-month ban by the PSL Disciplinary Committee after he was found guilty of spitting at assistant referee Zakhele Siwela during a match between Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns in April.

He appealed his ban and the Safa Appeals Board subsequently reduced his ban to a R50 000 fine, with R25 000 suspended for 12 months. The PSL then decided to appeal the ruling.
