Pitso Mosimane is apparently in deeper trouble than originally thought with the Mamelodi Sundowns coach facing a third disciplinary charge.

SowetanLIVE reports that the Premier Soccer League's prosecutor, Nande Becker, is preparing to lay the latest charge against him:

"There is now possibly a third case because I have seen an issue about another statement on top of the two that we had already. Basically, what we have asked him to do is to either admit or deny those statements attributed to him. The three are about comments towards referees."

Mosimane now has until Friday to respond to the charges, with Becker explaining that if Mosimane admits to the statements then he will be charged.

If not, a press conference will be called to hear his denial, with the costs concerned for the coach's account.

Numerous occasions have seen the Sundowns boss accusing referees of favouring rivals and he repeated his disapproval in a recent match against the Kaizer Chiefs.

Briefly.co.za gathered that last year had seen a case involving a scuffle with Satchmo Ngwenya, a security guard. Another case was for improper statements made after a match.

Becker says that previous misdemeanours could see Mosimane facing harsher sentences:

"From last season, [on] the issue of the statements he pleaded guilty and got a sentence, a portion of which was suspended. I can't remember the sentence. He was also found guilty on the scuffle with the security guard but the sanction has to be determined. Unfortunately, one of the members of the DC who sat on the matter passed away unexpectedly."
