- Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has landed himself in hot water following his comments in relation to match officials
- The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has issued a letter through their prosecutor, which gives Mosimane a deadline of five days to explain his actions
- Mosimane accused referees of favouring Kaizer Chiefs and was particularly scathing in his assessment of the match between his team and the Amakhosi
A common theme of this football season has been Pitso Mosimane's disdain for PSL match officials.
The Sundowns mentor is even more frustrated as he feels their errors have favoured Kaizer Chiefs and contributed to their position at the summit of the PSL log.
Briefly.co.za reported that Mosimane was particularly scathing in his assessment of the match between his chargers and the Amakhosi on Sunday, as he felt the opening goal should not have stood due to the goal-scorer being offside.
Mosimane's claims sparked a huge reaction amongst football followers and it may therefore come as no surprise that the PSL has taken exception to his comments.
TimesLIVE reported on the statement issued by the PSL, which read: “The league prosecutor has given Mr Mosimane five days to respond to the letters sent to him to either deny or admit the comments attributed to him in the media.”
Briefly.co.za understands that PSL prosecutor Nande Becker issued the letter for the Downs mentor to explain himself.
Mosimane has regularly voiced his dissatisfaction with match officials and his frustration has seemingly grown in recent weeks.
Mosimane recently referred to the Amakhosi when he said, "You can’t win every day by referee’s mistakes. It must stop‚ it’s enough."
Following the 2-0 loss to Chiefs, he made a controversial claim that Orlando Pirates supporters would not accept more referee bias in their upcoming Soweto Derby.
