Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will face no disciplinary action for missing a PSL-facilitated meeting with Bloemfontein Celtic on Tuesday over the disputes that have arisen from the Camaldine Abraw deal.
The Togolese striker was unveiled by Chiefs as a new signing last month, but since Celtic remain adamant that Abraw is their player and that he signed a three-year pre-contract with them before ‘joining’ Chiefs.
Celtic were angered that Chiefs had not honoured Tuesday’s meeting, but according to the PSL there is nothing stipulating that Chiefs’ attendance was compulsory.
"The attendance was completely optional – you can choose that you want to go or you can choose that you don’t want to go," PSL communications officer Lux September told Sport24.
September confirmed that the matter between Chiefs and Celtic had now been officially referred to the Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC).
Another matter involving Chiefs is the compensation dispute between new coach Steve Komphela and his former club Maritzburg United, who say they are owed money due to Komphela not serving his notice period during July.
United have threatened to the matter further, but September says that – according to his knowledge – the Midlands club has not approached the PSL for intervention on the matter.
