PSL Lockdown News

SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews has confirmed the club has dealt with Thamsanqa Gabuza for breaking lockdown laws.

In late May the striker was arrested for speeding and the club promised to take disciplinary action against him if found to be in the wrong, including a possible salary deduction.

According to Matthews, the player has been found guilty by the club and the matter has been dealt with internally.

"The Gabuza issue is dealt with," Matthews tells

"I can confirm that our player Thamsanqa Gabuza has received an internal sanction for transgressions of club policy before and during lockdown. His sanction remains confidential.

"We consider the current matter closed and he will rejoin the squad when training resumes like all the other players. His personal case is sub judice and was not considered at this time."

Besides being arrested for speeding during lockdown, Matthews was quizzed on what Gabuza was called up for before lockdown.

"He broke the club's code of conduct by missing training sessions without permission," Matthews explains.

Meanwhile, Matthews also gave an update on the club's interest in Jeremy Brockie and out-of-favour Bidvest Wits striker Mxolisi Macuphu.

"The season ends in August now, so we won't do any buying or signing until September, only selling," he adds.
