PSL DC fines Urban Warriors' Rosslee

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has issued a statement announcing the outcome of Thursday night's legal matter involving Ajax Cape Town coach Craig Rosslee.

The statement reads as follows:

"Mr Craig Rosslee appeared before the disciplinary committee of the league on Thursday evening to answer to charges of bringing the league into disrepute and for using abusive language to the fourth official i.e. Mr Robert Sithole.

"This was as a result of the incident which took place in a fixture between Ajax Cape Town and Kaizer Chiefs on September 22, 2007 at Loftus Stadium.

"Mr Rosslee pleaded guilty as charged and was convicted accordingly and sentenced as follows:

1. The DC fined Mr Rosslee R50,000 (fifty thousand rand), of which was wholly suspended for a period of 12 months on condition that Mr Rosslee is not found guilty of the same offence during the period of suspension.

2. The DC ordered Mr Rosslee to apologise in writing to the match officials of the day including Mr Sithole and that apology will be posted on the official PSL website

3. The DC ordered Mr Rosslee to pay the costs of the sittings, which amounted to R9000 excluding VAT.

4. Subject to the appeal processes, this sentence will take effect immediately."

Meanwhile, in a sign of gentlemanship, Mr Rosslee extended apologies to Mr Sithole live on TV and the footage of that incident was broadcasted live on SuperSport's Engen Premier Soccer show on Thursday night.

Mr Sithole indicated that he accepted Mr Rosslee's apology unreservedly.
