Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has admitted that the recent guilty verdict from the PSL was a thorn in the flesh.
Sundowns are facing a points deduction in the Absa Premiership after being found guilty of fielding an ineligible player.
In midweek, PSL prosecutor Nande Becker found Sundowns guilty of illegally fielding Wayne Arendse against Bidvest Wits in October. Arendse was fielded despite not being on the match-day squad in the 1-1 draw.
Mosimane was also found guilty of assaulting AmaZulu security officer Satchmo Ngwenya after their match in September.
“The guy whom I supposedly assaulted has spoken about it and he doesn’t say I beat him up … ”
Mosimane perhaps faces his toughest test yet as a tactician against Al Ahly in the quarterfinals of the premier African competition at the Lucas Moripe Stadium tomorrow (3pm).
