Orlando Pirates spokesman Mickey Modisane will have his day before the Premier Soccer League's disciplinary committee tomorrow evening.

Modisane and the club are facing charges of bringing the league and the game into disrepute.

According to the Premier Soccer League's charge sheet, Modisane is the first respondent and Pirates are the second respondents.

The charge sheet states that on February 15, Modisane "made comments and utterances through the Orlando Pirates website which have brought the league and the game into disrepute, or which is considered ungentlemanly, improper and insulting to the referee".

"In so doing, you (Modisane) contravened rule 53.2.9 of the rules of the league."

Modisane had torn into referee Jerome Damon after Pirates lost to Mamelodi Sundowns through a controversial penalty decision.

He wrote: "...What we witnessed yesterday was heartbreaking and also pathetic in the manner in which you handled our match against Sundowns.

"Most of us left Loftus stadium under tremendous shock and in sheer disbelief in the way you conducted the game from centre stage.

"You took over the show. Last night was not the Pirates versus Sundowns Gauteng derby, but instead was 'welcome to the Damon show'. You were supposed to walk away with the man of the match award, unfortunately, it is only meant for players."
