Chiefs Defender Suspended For City & Wits Clashes
Erick Mathoho Will Miss Two Kaizer Chiefs Games Through Suspension
Kaizer Chiefs defender, Erick Mathoho, will miss the club’s next two games due to suspension following his red card against SuperSport United last month.
‘Tower’ was given a straight red early in the game as Chiefs went on to lose 2-1 to Matsatsantsa at FNB Stadium, with Steve Komphela being forced to reshuffle things after his side was reduced to 10 men.
Mathoho, 27, then went on to get himself sent off for Bafana Bafana against Cape Verde shortly after, issuing an apology to fans for his back-to-back dismissals for club and country.
Komphela will now have to decide who will deputise for the centre back alongside Lorenzo Gordinho against both Cape Town City and Bidvest Wits over the next week, with Mathoho suspended for both encounters.
It is thought that it will be Daniel Cardoso who comes in to replace ‘Tower’, with Teenage Hadebe still facing a spell on the sidelines.
