PSL DC latest on charges against Chiefs


The PSL disciplinary committee has provided an update on its case against Kaizer Chiefs relating to charges against the club for allegedly fielding two ineligible players.

Earlier this month, the PSL disciplinary committee charged Chiefs with fielding two ineligible players during the club's 2-0 win over Sekhukhune United in December, with youngsters Aden McCarthy and Mduduzi Shabalala named as the players in question.

Amakhosi have since appeared before the committee to answer to the charges, with PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu confirming that the matter has now been postponed to 13 May 2022 when it will be brought to finality.

"I confirm that earlier today [Monday], Kaizer Chiefs appeared before the PSL DC to answer to charges of fielding two ineligible players who were originally registered for the DStv Diski Challenge, however, they were used in a fixture between Chiefs and Sekhukhune United," Majavu said.

"The case has been postponed to 13 May 2022, for final arguments and on that day, under the direction of the panel, the matter must be finalised. What will then be outstanding will be a judgment, which will be reserved, mindful of the fact that the season is drawing to an end."

Majavu also confirmed that Cape Town City chairman John Comitis will also appear before the disciplinary committee to answer to charges of bringing the game into disrepute following his protestations against a separate matter relating to Chiefs.

Comitis has landed himself in hot water after criticising the decision to re-arrange fixtures between Chiefs and City, and Chiefs and Golden Arrows, after the Soweto giants previously failed to honour the two scheduled matches due to a Covid-19 outbreak within their camp.

"The second confirmation is that Mr John Comitis will appear before the DC this coming Friday on 29 April to answer to charges of bringing the league into disrepute based on some media utterances attributable to him, which he subsequently confirmed as having been true and accurate," Majavu added.

"Once these matters have been finalised, I will provide feedback on the decision of the PSL DC itself."
