- The PSL denies that it is treating Mamelodi Sundowns unfairly
- The club is being prosecuted on or several charges
- The prosecutor, however, says he has no issue with Sundowns as he used to work as a director for the club
Nande Becker, a PSL prosecutor, says that the PSL does not hold a grudge against Mamelodi Sundowns.
This comes as the club faces five charges from the PSL.
Becker, however, says he previously worked as a director at Sundowns, so he has no animosity toward the club.
Becker was responding to complaints that he was treating Sundowns unfairly due to the charges against them, Briefly.co.za has learned.
The charges facing Sundowns stem from various incidents - some minor, some relatively serious.
They have been charged for the misbehaviour of their supporters at a match against Bidvest Wits two months ago. Additionally, the club was charged for failing to provide proper security during a match, as well as improper statements made by their coach, Pitso Mosimane.
The two most serious charges are against Mosimane for allegedly getting into a physical altercation with Satchmo Ngwenya, a security officer of AmaZulu, as well as the club itself for fielding Wayne Arendse despite his name not appearing on the team sheet.
All of these cases are still pending, according to The Sowetan.
The ruling in the latter case could result in a single point deduction for Sundowns. With Sundowns' match against Wits ending in a draw, this could have a major impact on who ends victorious at the end of the season.
