Steve’s anger to be ex­plained

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - LOCAL NEWS - Si­bongiseni Gumbi

The lid may fi­nally be lifted on what got Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Kom­phela (above) so an­gry that he acted out of char­ac­ter dur­ing a post-match TV in­ter­view fol­low­ing his team’s 1-1 draw with Bid­vest Wits last month.

Kom­phela was fum­ing on Septem­ber 16 and claimed that a cer­tain Wits of­fi­cial had mis­treated him for a sec­ond time in two sea­sons. At the time Kom­phela could not go into de­tails but the mat­ter will be laid bare when Wits of­fi­cials Jonathan Schloss and Ge­orge Mo­gotsi ap­pear be­fore the Premier Soc­cer League’s Dis­ci­plinary Com­mit­tee on Wed­nes­day.

Schloss and Mo­gotsi have been charged with con­tra­ven­ing the PSL’s rule­book and are sus­pected of hav­ing used of­fen­sive ges­tures or lan­guage to­wards the coach.

In a rather strange twist of events, the PSL also charged AmaZulu’s Michael Mor­ton for mis­con­duct, which has left many be­mused.

The PSL an­nounced that Mor­ton had also been charged with mis­con­duct fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent that hap­pened on Septem­ber 20 dur­ing an Absa Premier­ship match be­tween AmaZulu and Bid­vest Wits.

Mor­ton was red-carded af­ter man­han­dling Wits’ Gabad­inho Mhango. Tele­vi­sion re­plays showed that Mhango had spat at the Usuthu mid­fielder fol­low­ing a foul.

Mhango has also since been charged for the of­fence.
