Johannesburg - The Soweto giants made another trip to the PSL offices on Monday with both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates receiving suspended sentences from prosecutor Zola Majavu for disciplinary offences.

Amakhosi along with their coach, Vladimir Vermezovic appeared on charges of unruly behavior and bringing the League into disrepute.

This follows an incident on 02 December 2010 where Vermezovic failed to attend an obligatory interview for SABC Sports Soccer 411 program, thus contravening media manual section 'A' which is incorporated in the compliance manual and as agreed in the activation meeting on Friday the 26 November 2010 that two head coaches would attend SABC Program 411 and two players would attend the SuperSport Program, Thursday night with Robert Marawa.

Chiefs were fined R50 000, wholly suspended for 12 months. Chiefs also have to issue a written apology to both SABC and SuperSport as well at the PSL within seven days of the order.

Orlando Pirates, meanwhile, appeared on charges of delaying the kick off and failure to obey a match officials' directive for the goalkeeper to change his socks to comply with the phone and pre match meeting.

This incident occurred in a match between Pirates and Bloemfontein Celtic on 12 December 2010 played at Orlando Stadium.

Bucs caused the delay of the official kick off of match which was scheduled for 15:30 (and eventually started at 15:33) by three minutes in that the goalkeeper failed to change to an alternative colour of socks when so ordered by the match officials and in spite of having agreed at both the phone and pre-match meeting to dress the goalkeeper in green socks, instead he wore white socks over green socks, thus contravening rule 10.1 read with 52.2.6 and of the rules of the League, further read with rule 5.3 and 9.12 of the kit manual.

In the same match as in above in the second half, the goalkeeper failed to wear an appropriate colour of socks in that he was now wearing black socks with a white trim.

Pirates were fined R30 000 wholly suspended for 12 months.

Jomo Cosmos were fined R30 000 of which R25 000 was suspended for 12 months.

Ezenkosi appeared on charges of failure to wear a properly marked kit. This incident occurred in a match played at De Beers Stadium on 4 December 2010 between United FC and Cosmos where the latter's reserve Goalkeeper (wearing jersey number 04 on the day) wore a jersey which did not comply with the rules in that his name was written with what looked like an 'elasto plaster tape' at the back thus contravening rule 12.7 of the rules of the League, read with rule 7.6, 7.7 of the Kit manual.
