Johannesburg - The South African Football Association (SAFA) Appeal Board has lifted Mabhuti Khenyeza’s 12-month ban.

According to the Soccer-Laduma website, Khenyeza was handed the ban by the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee after he was found guilty of spitting at assistant referee Zakhele Siwela.

The striker then appealed against the ban and the SAFA Appeal Board overturned the PSL DC’s ruling.

Aces coach Clive Barker expressed delight about the Appeal Board's decision.

“I’m happy that Mabhuti will now play without this ban hovering above his head. He can now put this whole saga behind him and focus on football again. I’m really happy for him,” said Barker.

It is believed that the Appeal Board set aside the ban, but handed Khenyeza a fine instead.

“As for the fine, I can’t comment on it because I don’t know anything about it. I only know about the lifted ban,” explained Barker.
