CAPE Town City midfielder, Mpho Makola, will face an agonising wait before he finds out his fate following his appearance at the Disciplinary Committee (DC) on Tuesday.

PSL prosecutor, Nande Becker, said all parties involved must file final arguments before Monday before he can prosecute.

“We finished with the witnesses and all the parties must file heads of argument in respect of the merits by Monday,” Becker said.

Makola is facing a possible six months ban after he was charged by the PSL when he allegedly pushed match official Thando Ndzandzeka. The incident happened during the MTN8 final at Moses Mabhida Stadium on 30 October.

But City are appealing for a lesser sentence.

Makola was unhappy during the penalty shoot-out after he felt Sundowns goalkeeper, Denis Onyango, appeared to come early off his line to save Thami Mkhize’s penalty. Downs won the trophy 3-2 on penalties after the teams were tied 1-1 after extra time.

Makola put his hands onto Ndzandzeka which, according to the laws of the game, he is not allowed to do.

However, Makola was not shown the red card by Ndzandzeka.

But the player’s actions were reported to the PSL in the match report to the league.

This is the second time the former Free State Stars midfielder laid his hands on a match official.

He pushed Abongile Tom during the Telkom Knockout fixture against Kaizer Chiefs at Cape Town Stadium on 19 October 2019.

The PSL then banned him for six months. However, Makola’s ban was overturned after City took the case to Safa’s Appeals Board, who turned it into a four-match suspension.

Becker has assured that the PSL will fight tooth and nail to see that this verdict is not overturned by Safa’s Appeals Board, if the matter is referred to Safa again.
