- Sundowns midfielder, Gaston Sirino, may feature in the Telkom Knockout final
- The player is currently out on a two-match ban
- He will be cleared to play in the final in Durban if his ongoing assault case doesn't have him suspended
Gaston Sirino may benefit from the rescheduled game between Sundowns and Stellenbosch. The midfielder was charged with two cases of assault against Clayton Daniel and Dean Furman of SuperSport United.
Sundowns asked for the game on 11 December to be postponed because they had too many commitments. They then changed again and asked for the match to be kept the same day.
The match will now take place at Loftus Stadium on the scheduled day instead of Cape Town as was initially planned. Sundowns are currently out of the country, having left to face Wydad Casablanca in Morocco for the CAF Champions League at the end of this week.
Briefly.co.za reported that PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns arrived in Morocco on Tuesday ahead of their CAF Champions League match. Sundowns were forced to travel to France to take a connecting flight to Casablanca. The Brazilians shared some behind-the-scenes footage of their travels.
Sirino is currently banned for two consecutive matches after picking up a red card. The ban will be over by the time Sundowns face Maritzburg United on 14 December.
The player has been charged with assault against two players from Supersport United, Clayton Daniel and Dean Furman. He has pleaded not guilty to both charges.
