Cape Town - Platinum Stars goalkeeper Mbongeni Mzimela felt hard-done for the manner his disciplinary charges were handled by the management of the club.

Late last season Mzimela, together with Masibusane Zongo and Khulekani Madondo, allegedly arrived for training intoxicated.

Zongo had his contract terminated for being a repeat transgressor after numerous misconduct charges during his time with Dikwena.

"I can admit what I did was wrong and I felt myself personally that the way the matter was dealt with was not the same as other situations to other players," Mzimela told KickOff.

"I felt it was too harsh for the matter to be dragged in the media or to go to the DC. I'm speaking of my situation and Madondo, it was something the club as a family should have quickly covered it up inside the club.

"But I'm not saying it was right what we did. It was very wrong what we did, but I felt afterwards the club should have just talked to us and end the matter like any other players like they have done in the past."
