The Premier Soccer League have lodged an appeal against the Disciplinary Committee’s ruling over the Mamelodi Sundowns and Wayne Arendse case.
The PSL DC last week handed down its ruling in the said matter, issuing a R250 000 fine to Sundowns and R50 000 to Wayne Arendse.
The League, however, are adamant that the decision taken by its own judiciary arm was incorrect and have appealed to the SAFA Legal Counsel in hopes of overturning the sanction.
According to a submission obtained by KickOff.com, this has been done on the grounds that the DC, through Advocate Joe Nalane, “erred and/or misdirected itself” in its ruling.
Thus, the appeal requests relief in that, firstly, the appeal be upheld; the match be awarded to Bidvest Wits with a 3-0 goal advantage in place of the fine; Wayne Arendse be handed a two-match, and in the event that Sundowns oppose the appeal, pay the costs of the sitting.
Meanwhile, The Brazilians have since returned to the summit of the Absa Premiership with a commanding 2-0 victory over Golden Arrows on Tuesday evening, and will retain their title with a victory in their final match against Free State Stars this weekend, regardless of the outcome of the appeal.
