The PSL has confirmed charges for Mpho Makola and three more PSL coaches for their statements on match officials.

The Cape Town City star could face a lengthy suspension if he is found guilty by the PSL's Disciplinary Committee.

Makola manhandled and pushed Tom during his side's Telkom Knockout last-16 encounter between the Citizens and Kaizer Chiefs, after the Soweto team was awarded a penalty.

PSL prosecutor Nande Becker has confirmed that the player has been brought to book and will appear before the DC on November 14.

"Yes, he has been charged with misconduct and assaulting the referee, and there are a lot of coaches in hot water as well," Becker tells KickOff.com.

According to the NSL rule book, Makola could be suspended up to a maximum of six months if found guilty by the League.

The PSL has also confirmed that Benni McCarthy, Steve Komphela and Owen Da Gama have all been sent correspondence relating to comments made about referees.

Like Pitso Mosimane and Zlatko Krmpotic before them, the latest trio have also been given five days to respond to the League's letters.
