Malawian star striker Gabadinho Mhango will face South Africa’s PSL disciplinary committee set for October 18 over spitting controversy after he was charger for misconduct during his team Bidvest Wits game against AmaZulu last month.
The Malawian star is accused of spitting in the face of AmaZulu’s Michael Morton in reaction to a crude tackle.
Kickoff.com quoted a statement from PSL released on October 10 stated that Mhango has been charged and will appear before a disciplinary committee on October 18.
“Mr Mhango has been charged with misconduct for allegedly offending the dignity of AmaZulu FC Michael Morton following a spitting incident on 20 September, 2017 at Princes Magogo Stadium,” reads the statement in part.
PSL also charged Morton for “offending the dignity of Bidvest Wits player Gabadinho Mhango following a further spitting incident on September 20.”
Gabadinho team George Mogotsi has also been charged for apparently using offensive language towards referees.
“Mr Mogotsi has been charged with contravening rule 54 of NSL after he allegedly used offensive language at the match officials during Absa Premiership match between Bidvest Wits and Kaizer Chiefs on September 16,” states the letter.
Bidvest Chief Operations Officer Jonathan Schloss has also been charged with contravening rule 54 for an incident with Chiefs coach Steve Komphela as the two almost came to blows during the September 16 match.
All will appear before a disciplinary committee hearing on October 18.
