coaches can't stand the heat

WITH the current Premier Soccer League season all but finished, some coaches are making news for all the wrong reasons.

While SuperSport United were winning their third consecutive league title at the nearby Super Stadium on Wednesday night, Kaizer Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermezovic was seemingly hurling obscenities at referee Buyile Gqubule in their match against Mpumalanga Black Aces at Loftus Stadium.

The Serbian mentor had to be restrained by the match commissioner and one of his players.

Now Vermezovic, like his Mamelodi Sundowns counterpart Hristo Stoichkov, who accused a referee of being "corrupt" after their match against Moroka Swallows on Friday, could feel the wrath of the league.

Steve Goddard, who was the match commissioner for Wednesday's match, told Sowetan yesterday he had sent a report to the league to this effect.

"In terms of what happened he (Vermezovic) was apprehended by the fourth official," Goddard said.

"It is all in the league's hands now. I have included the matter in my report, which I have handed over to the league."

Premier Soccer League chief operations officer Ronnie Schloss said they were waiting for the match report and would take action if it was warranted.

"If the coach in fact invaded the pitch then he could be charged with bringing the league into disrepute.

"We will try to find out from the fourth official what he said and we'll take it from there," Schloss said.

Schloss also said it was up to the clubs to ensure that their employees, coaches and players alike, adhered to the rules governing the game.

"The coaches are obviously employed by clubs, so it is the clubs' responsibility to make sure that they, and also their players, do not contravene the rules of the game."
