Former PSL general manager and referee Ace Ncobo has called for disciplinary action against Kaizer Chiefs' Itumeleng Khune. Khune was caught in an off-the-ball episode with Maritzburg United striker Judas Moseamedi during Chiefs' 2-1 triumph over them in the MTN8 quarter-finals.
Khune has been blamed for 'violent conduct' after he extended his leg to Moseamedi after surrendering a goal on Saturday. Ncobo says that Khune's incident should warrant comparable discipline to those who were previously suspended for violent conduct.
Chiefs will without a doubt be worrying over the chance of Khune being suspended, especially since Daniel Akpeyi passed up this past weekend's game because of visa issues.
Take a look at the video below depicting the incident Ncobo refers too:
Speaking to Extra Time, Ncobo said,
“As soon as the ball is out of play, it’s violent conduct. It doesn’t matter if you commit it with your small finger, your fist, your head or your foot."
The South African reported that Ncobo said:
"Violent conduct is punishable by a suspension whether or not a red card is shown during the match. That’s irrelevant, violent conduct must be punished with a suspension."
Take a look at what some Saffa soccer fans had to say about the incident:
"The kick though. Hilarious. But why did he vent his anger on Judas instead of his defence mara Khune though."
"To me, this should have been a red card."
Staying with soccer news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on Siphiwe Tshabalala and Luvuyo Memela joining AmaZulu. Siphiwe Tshabalala once made South Africa very proud after scoring a goal during the 2010 World Cup that was held in the country.
The AmaZulu football team is looking to score some of that winning spirit by hiring the soccer hero. It was recently reported that Tshabalala was already in Durban and ready to sign his contract with the team, which is currently on a mission to make a comeback into the South African football competition after the team was bought by Kwa-Zulu-Natal businessman, Sandile Zungu.
Luvuyo Memela of Orlando Pirates is also said to have joined the AmaZulu on their mission to obtain football glory. Both players have already hit the fields in preparation for upcoming South African football matches.
