PSL prosecutor Nande Becker says Mamelodi Sundowns could face misconduct charges for including Tebogo Langerman on their team sheet for the Nedbank Cup final.

Langerman was suspended for the game against Bloemfontein Celtic, which Sundowns went on to win 1-0, but was included on the bench nonetheless.

Coach Pitso Mosimane stated afterwards that he was unaware of the blunder, but Becker has explained that once the facts have been scrutinised the Brazilians could face repercussions.

"I believe there was an issue with one of the Sundowns players. I don’t have the full facts yet, I've just called on the football department to send me a copy of the match report. I will review that and see whether there’s any further steps to be taken," said Becker, according to SowetanLive.

"If there were players on the team sheet that were ineligible, obviously as it’s been on past similar cases, misconduct charges will be levelled [against Sundowns].

"Any competence sentence against the player and the club will be on the table that ranges from reprimand, forfeiture, banning... In my mind, there was knowledge beforehand that the person [Langerman] should not be fielded."
