JOHANNESBURG - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has confirmed that it has charged Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, with making improper statements and bringing the league into disrepute.

According to the statement, Mosimane was charged after comments he made during the PSL match between Sundowns and Orlando Pirates at Loftus Stadium, following his side's 3-0 loss.

After the match, Mosimane accused Pirates of foul play because they questioned the legitimacy of the registration of defender Alje Schut.

"I find it very strange and amazing that Orlando Pirates can know what's happening on our books when they went straight to Schut's card. I don't know what is happening in their books."

It later emerged that the registration card used by Schut for that game was from last season.

Mosimane could be a subject to a hefty fine as he is still serving a suspended sentence for a previous charge.

In May, the PSL handed him a R60,000 fine, suspended for a year, after he accused the referee during the game against Ajax Cape Town in the Nedbank Cup of being too emotional.

Mosimane will appear before the PSL disciplinary committee on Thursday.
