PSL mum on Majoro sanctions

Johannesburg - Following Orlando Pirates striker Lehlohonolo Majoro’s brutal career-threatening stamping on Platinum Stars midfielder Mahlatsi Makudubela over the weekend, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) communications officer, Luxolo September, says the Absa Premiership governing body will not make any intervention before the matter reaches the Disciplinary Committee (DC).

The Buccaneers’ in-form goal poacher was given his marching orders, in their 2-0 triumph over the struggling Dikwena at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Saturday, for stamping on the 24-year-old play-maker in an off-the-ball incident. 

Despite stating that appropriate actions might be taken against Majoro if the matter goes to DC, September also confirmed that the sanctions would not include banning the Ladybrand-born player from playing competitive football for a certain period.

“At the moment I can’t comment on the incident which took place between the two parties,” September told Sport24 in an exclusive interview of Monday.

“And again I can’t confirm or decline if there would be sanctions on Lehlohonolo Majoro.

“The match commissioners submitted their report but the PSL can only intervene on the matter if it gets to the Disciplinary Committee.

“Even if it gets to that, I can’t say that the sanctions would include banning Lehlohonolo Majoro to play for a certain period.

“Because the PSL has never banned any player from playing because of incidents on that nature.”

Majoro, 28, will miss Pirates’ Nedbank Cup last 32 encounter against Tornado FC on Wednesday and will also not feature in the  Absa Premiership games against Free State Stars and Polokwane City.

It remains to be seen if the PSL will take disciplinary action against the former Kaizer Chiefs man.
