Schut left Sundowns at the end of last season to return to Netherlands for family reasons but the PSL still fined him for an incident that occurred against Aces in a league match.

The Dutch defender was fined R10 000 for bringing the game into disrepute and has issued an apology through the official website of his former club.

“I would like to render my sincere apology for the incident that occurred in the league match against Mpumalanga Black Aces.”

“Football is a sport played with great passion and emotion. A good result was very important for my team in that particular match and when we felt aggrieved by some decisions from the referee, emotions took over.”

“I have great respect for the game of football and the people involved in it.

“As players, match officials and supporters we play a vital role in promoting the spirit of Fair Play.”

Sundowns were issued a R20 000 fine which has been suspended on condition that no unsavoury incidents occur during next season.

Pitso Mosimane was also brought into the line of fire for the incident by the PSL but he was acquitted of any wrongdoing.
