Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane, has written a letter of apology to the PSL following his comments directed at the referee of a match against Ajax Cape Town in February this year.

According to the Soccer Laduma website, the outspoken mentor was not happy about the officiating of Kulasande Qongqo and, although they ended up winning the Nedbank Cup tie, he expressed his unhappiness at the officiating.

As a result, he was summoned to appear before the league’s Disciplinary Committee, where he was charged with bringing the league into disrepute. Mosimane was sentenced to a fine of R60 000 and the club to a fine of R30 000, both suspended in total for a period of 12 months.

His apology letter reads as follows:

“Dear Sirs,

I hereby apologise to the referee Mr Qongqo, the Premier Soccer League and its sponsorts, the South African Football Association, the Confederation of African Football and FIFA for the statement I made during the post-match interview after the match between Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns, which were considered improper, ungentlemanly and insulting.

I pray that my sincere apology is accepted.

Yours faithfully,

P MOSIMANE”
