Orlando Pirates management will meet on Monday to discuss the legal fee their player Siphelele Mthembu is to pay after he was found guilty by the PSL disciplinary committee on Tuesday night.

Mthembu was slapped with a R30 000 fine and an additional R20500 for legal costs.

The former Maritzburg City striker appeared before the PSL disciplinary committee with Carara Kicks defender Clive Hachilensa.

Hachilensa was slapped with a R20 000 fine plus R20500 legal costs. The legal costs are payable within 60 days.

Both pleaded guilty to signing two contracts with two different teams. Mthembu with Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs and Hachilensa with National First Division teams Carrara Kicks and African Warriors.

Mthembu was later declared a Pirates player by the PSL dispute resolution chamber, and Hachilensa was also declared Kicks property.

Pirates executive administrator Floyd Mbele said yesterday that since the R30000 fine was suspended for 12 months, they will only discuss the legal costs the player is to pay.

Kicks general manager Basil Mohalane said they were only told about the fine and not the amount of the legal costs.

"We're happy that the matter has been laid to rest," he said.

Mthembu and Hachilensa declined to comment on the matter .
