Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has been found guilty by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) of violent conduct for punching an AmaZulu security official.

A PSL statement said: "In a matter arising from an incident between AmaZulu and Mamelodi Sundowns on September 1, 2018, Pitso Mosimane was charged with misconduct after he allegedly assaulted AmaZulu team security official, Satchmo Ngwenya by punching him in the face."

Mamelodi Sundowns were charged for bringing the league into disrepute as a result of their Mosimane's actions.

Both the club as well as Mosimane were found guilty. Sanctions are to be handed down once all the parties have made submissions to the Disciplinary Committee.

The 54-year-old was charged with assault after a complaint was laid against him by a security official.

Sport24 revealed that a complaint was made by a security guard at the King Zwelithini Stadium after a fracas took place between Sundowns fans and a member of the technical team.

"Security guard Nathi Ngwenya of Ngwelela Protection Services, a defense company with AmaZulu FC, has opened a case," said AmaZulu spokesperson Brillant Mkhathini.

"He indicated that the coach had struck him in the face after the match."

KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Lt-Colonel Thulani Zwane confirmed that a case was opened.

"A case of assault at Umlaza police station was opened. No one has been arrested while investigations continue," Zwane said.

According to reports, Mosimane left the police station after the match that saw his side held by AmaZulu in a 3-3 draw.
