Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) are still yet to make a judgement involving the altercation between Bidvest Wits official Jonathan Schloss and Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela in September.

Schloss was charged with misconduct in the 1-1 draw between Chiefs and Wits in that month after allegedly using offensive gestures and bad language towards Komphela.

However, after the matter went before the league's Dispute Resolution Chamber on Thursday, the PSL have since said a ruling had yet to be reached.

A statement read: "The League brought charges against Bidvest Wits FC and Mr. Jonathan Schloss arising from an incident which took place after the match between Bidvest Wits FC and Kaizer Chiefs FC at the FNB Stadium on 16 September 2017.

"This follows the alleged use of offensive gestures and language by Mr. Schloss directed at the Kaizer Chiefs’ coach, Mr. Steve Komphela. The matter was deliberated and judgment has been reserved."

It is unknown what penalty the official could face although it is likely to be a suspension or a financial sanction if found guilty of the charge.
