PSL Media Statement on alleged utterances by Mr Thidiela

The National Soccer League has become aware of the alleged utterances which appear to have been made by Mr David Thidiela, the chairman of Black Leopards Football Club, at Thohoyandou Stadium on 16 September 2018.

The League distances itself from any comment or utterance such as that which has been reported. Black Leopards is a member of the League, and both the club and Mr Thidiela are bound by the NSL Handbook. If the reported utterances are true, this would contravene the League Code of Ethics.
