Downs charged for Ngcongca tribute

Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed their date with PSL prosecutor Nande Becker a day after Valentine's Day following charges and allegations of bringing the PSL, sponsors and SAFA into disrepute.

Sundowns have been summoned before the PSL Disciplinary Committee today after they were alleged to have breached Rule 55 in the PSL Handbook during the recent DStv Premiership match against Stellenbosch in Pretoria.

Both teams clapped hands in the 16th minute to honour the late Anele Ngcongca as a sign of respect for the fallen defender, who died in a car accident in KwaZulu-Natal last year.

Stellenbosch have also been charged for their part in celebrating the former Bafana Bafana star, who wore jersey number 16 during his stint with The Brazilians.

Club official Yogesh Singh confirms a case was brought to them by the PSL DC today.

"Yes it's true, and we are preparing for the case at 5pm today," Singh tells KickOff.com.

Sundowns could face a similar case with the PSL DC after their league game against Chippa United at Loftus Stadium a few weeks ago was also stopped in the same manner.

On that occasion the two sides halted the game in the second minute to honour the late Motjeka Madisha, who wore jersey number two at Chloorkop.
