Komphela And Larsen Cause Uproar

Orlando Pirates assistant coach, Eric Tinkler, is said to be unhappy at the manner in which his case of insulting a match official on May 18 was handled.

Tinkler was charged together with the club following the insults he allegedly directed at Bafana Mosia, who was the match official in their 3-2 loss against Maritzburg United, in their last game of the 2012/13 season.

Tinkler was fined R25 000 by the PSL’s Disciplinary Committee for his actions, although the fine was suspended for 12 months, while the club was acquitted.

A source close to the Bucs camp revealed to the Siya crew that Tinkler is now waiting to see what actions will be taken against other coaches who commit similar offences.

“There was this thing that Eric got a R25 000 suspended fine for insulting the referee. Do people know what Eric said to the referee? Everyone reported that he insulted the referee without really stating what he said exactly.

“He said the referee was playing with the lives of the coaches and that he was a joke. Those were his exact words. He was called in front of a DC and got a year’s suspension for the R25 000 fine,” said the source.

Bloemfontein Celtic coach, Clinton Larsen, and his Free State Stars counterpart, Steve Komphela, could face a DC hearing, following their conduct in the opening weekend of the 2013/14 Absa Premiership season.

Celtic and Stars both lost their games, against Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United, respectively.
