PSL Eventually Hands Out Sirino Sanction

14 May 2020

The Premier Soccer League’s Disciplinary Committee has taken seven months to hand out a fine and suspension to Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Gaston Sirino and his club.

This, after an incident that took place in September of last year.

The Brazilians were found guilty of bringing the league into disrepute, while Sirino was found guilty of assaulting two SuperSport United players, Dean Furman and Clayton Daniels.

Sundowns were ordered to pay a fine R200 000, of which R150 000 was suspended for two years, on condition that they are not found guilty of a similar offence during the period of suspension.

Sirino was handed a two-match suspension and ordered to pay a fine of R75 000, of which R25 000 was suspended for two years.

The incident in question took place during a MTN8 clash between the two sides on 18 September, 2019, with SuperSport United 2-0 victors.
