The Brazilians were found guilty of bringing the League in disrepute while Sirino was found guilty of assaulting two SuperSport United players, Dean Furman and Clayton Daniels.

The DC has ruled that: Mamelodi Sundowns is ordered to pay a fine R200 000 of which R150 000 is suspended for a period of 24 months on condition that they are not found guilty of a similar offence during the period of suspension.

"Gaston Sirino is ordered to serve a two-match suspension.

"Sirino is ordered to pay a fine of R75 000 of which R25 000 is suspended for a period of 24 months on condition that they are not found guilty of a similar offence during the period of suspension.

"Both Mamelodi Sundowns and Sirino are ordered to pay the several sittings of the Disciplinary Committee," a PSL statement said.

The incident in question took place during an MTN8 clash between the two sides on 18 September, 2019 with SuperSport United 2-0 victors.

This means that the PSL DC took an astonishing 7 months and 23 days to hand out a sanction after the Sundowns attacker was seen to strike out at the two players.
