Khoza Comments On Sukazi Incident

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) Chairman Irvin Khoza has commented on the heated incident that saw TS Galaxy owner Tim Sukazi denied access to Orlando Stadium this weekend.

Galaxy posted a video on Saturday before their DStv Premiership clash against Pirates which saw Sukazi forcibly denied access to the stadium as he looked to join his team in the changing room.

Pirates went on to win the game 2-0 but the video that has since gone viral on social media caused debate with several figures within the league condemning the treatment of the Rockets chairman.

Acting PSL CEO Mato Madlala says they have yet to receive the reports on the incident which left them unable to comment on what transpired.

“The matter that happened over the weekend, we haven’t received all the reports because we get the reports after all the games from the match commissioners and feedback from clubs,” Mdalala said during the launch of the DStv Compact Cup on Monday morning.

“We always get the safety reports for the game. Not all the reports have been received by the league, as soon as we receive them, we work on them – if they are to be referred they will be to different places. If they must be referred to legal then it goes to legal – we haven’t received everything.”

Khoza, who is also the chairman of Pirates went on to state briefly that he addressed the incident with Sukazi personally: “I must also add during that incident that Tim Sukazi phoned me and I had a discussion with him.”

Earlier this season Bafana Bafana head coach Hugo Broos also stated that he was not able to attend a fixture at the same venue.
