Pirates challenge PSL ruling after being fined R100 000?

After being found guilty last week, the Pirates were fined R100,000, which was suspended for a year on the condition that they were not found guilty of the same offense.

Skirmishes caught on camera on December 11 in the build-up to their league against TS Galaxy are at the center of the storm.

Despite having all required access accreditation, Galaxy manager Tim Sukazi was manhandled when he was denied admittance to the dressing rooms and pitch.

"I can confirm that Orlando Pirates Football Club has chosen to appeal the DC judgement in their case involving Mr Sukazi's manhandling, which they are absolutely entitled to do."

"That appeal will be heard under the auspices of SAFA, and once that matter has been resolved, I will confirm the conclusion," said PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu.

With goals from Bandile Shandu and Collins Makgaka, the Pirates won the match 2-0.Sukazi has spoken out extensively about the incident, as well as the PSL's penalty.
