AmaZulu Confused About Spitting Incident Charge

AmaZulu confirmed being confused about the charges brought against their player over an alleged spitting incident in a recent official PSL game.

AmaZulu’s Michael Morton was involved in a spitting incident with Gabadinho Mhango of Bidvest Wits in an Absa Premiership game for the two sides at King Zwelithini Stadium on September 20.

The league has since confirmed that Mhango has been charged with misconduct for his alleged spitting incident on Morton. The Malawian is set to appear before the PSL’s DRC next week.

Morton was shown a red card by referee Welcome Setloboko for retaliation, following the alleged spitting incident during that game. However, the PSL has since confirmed that Morton is set to also appear before the DRC for ‘allegedly offending the dignity of Mhango’, following the spitting incident.

Contacted for comment, AmaZulu’s media officer Brilliant Mkhathini told the Siya crew that the Durban-based club is in the dark on why the team’s central midfielder has been charged by the league.  

 
“We also don’t know and I’m sure you are confused as well because you watched the game and probably saw the highlights and saw what happened or who spat on who. We also don’t know, we just have to wait for the day of the hearing,” said Mkhathini. 

Having already missed the game against Platinum Stars before the FIFA international break, Morton is now left with one game to complete his two-match suspension for the red card.

“For now, for us, it’s just for him (Morton) to relax a bit and focus on his game. He’s alright. It’s just that he is as confused as you. We don’t know what the intent was from the PSL’s side. The player is okay. He’s served his suspension for the red card, and I think there’s just one more game left. We need him ready for the next game. We’ll go through the hearing,” concluded the Usuthu official.

As confirmed by the league, the two players are set to appear before the PSL’s DRC on October 18.

I found it difficult to understand the decisions taken by the PSL, How should one react when someone spit at their face? remain silence or what? come on yes it fair play yes it being professional, but when someone spit at your face it difficult to remain professional as we are human beings and have reaction factors!!

As long as this league is run by a certain someone, then nothing will ever come right you just have to look at his club as point of reference

This evil PSL DRC is distorting a lot of money out of players in this kind of incidents. The corrupt and greedy are running the show with khoza and his girlfriend as the alpha couple.

PSL is full of drunkers, i wonder wich Mhango's dignity are they talking about or they charge him for wiping the saliva in his face. On a serious note, PSL is useless there is no way you charge a victim.
