Kaizer Chiefs Man Reacts To FIFA Ban And Fine

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 02, 2017 09:10 AM

Kaizer Chiefs’ Erick Mathoho has once again apologised to the nation following his red card booking while on duty for Bafana Bafana.

The towering defender picked up a red during the first leg of the country’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying encounter against Cape Verde last month, September, 01.

The South African Football Association since confirmed that the player has been withdrawn from Head Coach Stuart Baxter’s 25-man squad to face Burkina Faso this month, October 07.

Mathoho is set to face an extra two-match ban and will have to pay a fine of CHF 5000 (R±70000).

“The player Erick Mathoho is suspended for two matches including the automatic match suspension, which was served in the match played between the representative teams of South Africa and Cape Verde Islands on 5 September 2017.”

“The player is ordered to pay a fine in the amount of CHF 5,000 in accordance with art.10 c) and art. 15 of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee (FDC),” SAFA Revealed.

“Words fail me when I think of the incident and the red card itself, but from the bottom of my heart, I want to once again apologise for my actions – to the entire Bafana Bafana team and all the football loving fans,” Mathoho revealed on SAFA’s official website.

“Let me also take this opportunity to wish the team all the best against Burkina Faso in this crucial match. I know it’s not going to be easy but I have confidence that they will get positive results. We did not do well in the last two matches but I believe we will rise again, starting with this upcoming clash. Good luck to all,” he added.

Why penalise the player twice? I mean if you ban him from playing for two games why then impose a further fine? FIFA targeting you because you are soft target just like South Africa.

@Maj You're running naked when a black player has committed a mistake and keeping quiet when a White coach and players do like wise. You are so captured and your brains not free & liberated

Be strong boy, even many of your fellow countrymen simply dislike you for your Venda heritage. I don't expect a different treatment from those Fifa monkeys.

@Geoff Stunner A fine to a player is no different to another player irrespective of association. Mhango has to be summoned a R100 000 FINE by PSL (Manto Madlala) + 5 year ban or a deportation back to Malawi. His filthy saliva is the worst ever incident that is taken serious by FIFA
