Premier Soccer League prosecutor Nande Becker has confirmed to the Siya crew that the scuffle between Cape Town City and Maritzburg United in the tunnel at the weekend will be investigated.
In an Absa Premiership game, Maritzburg lost 3-2 at full-time, there were disturbing scenes as club officials from both camps clashed – although there is still no clarity, only allegations, as to what led to the dramatic scenes.
City’s media officer, Vusi Ntimane, took to Twitter yesterday to suggest that there were racial slurs hurled in his direction, an accusation the PSL will take seriously if it is indeed proved to be true.
“The matter is under investigation at the moment,” Becker told the Siya crew. “People were taking private videos, so there is a lot of footage to look at. I don’t want to pre-empt anything, but we will know after that which charges are going to be preferred. It didn’t look good. We all saw what happened and people will read into that what they want to. But I think there will be steps taken.”
Match commissioner Abdul Ebrahim has already submitted his report to the PSL prosecutor for reviewing in the likelihood of preparing a charge sheet.
