Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt feels for Mamelodi Sundowns


Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt feels for Mamelodi Sundowns who still have not had an outcome in their disciplinary committee case involving central defender Wayne Arendse.

Sundowns, Arendse and the PSL with prosecutor Nande Becker, made written submissions to the disciplinary committee last week, in an effort to get the matter resolved as soon as possible.

The defending Absa Premiership champions were found guilty of fielding an ineligble Arendse in their match against Wits in the first half of the season, when his name was not on the 18-man match day squad. The game finished 1-1.

Sundowns, who take on Black Leopards in Thohoyandou on Tuesday night, could get docked a point.

“With the way things are going at the moment, boardroom points are going left, right and centre. I mean you get a game [Bloemfontein Celtic vs Cape Town City] abandoned and you get points, I don’t understand. Games should always be played, it does not matter…behind closed doors, in another country, but it has to be played.

“We’ve done nothing wrong, but how come [the Sundowns case] is dragging on? I’m sure Sundowns are feeling the worst effect of it because they want to know what the situation is. With the way things are going, you never know what can happen.”
