CT City in hot water over Makola comments

21 Nov 2019, 17:42 GMT+10

Cape Town - Absa Premiership outfit Cape Town City may have landed themselves in hot water over comments criticising the Premier Soccer League's (PSL) decision to ban midfielder Mpho Makola for six-months.

The former Orlando Pirates midfielder received the hefty suspension for pushing referee Abongile Tom in the Telkom Knockout defeat to Kaizer Chiefs.

And City were less than impressed with the decision and slammed the disciplinary process conducted by prosecutor Nande Becker.

City said in a statement released.

But the Cape Town-based club may just have dug themselves a hole with those comments with the PSL poised to react punitively.

"The comments made by Cape Town City are under consideration for possible further action by the League," Becker told KickOff.

"The matter has been re-enrolled for argument in respect of an appropriate sanction against the club. This hearing will take place on 26 November."

City chairman John Comitis could not be reached for comment.
