Sad ending as Mbombela United relegated for misconduct
Mbombela United has been shockingly relegated from the Glad Africa Championship to the ABC Motsepe League, after being docked 23 points for allegedly fielding TS Sporting player.
This comes after TS Sporting lodged a complaint against Mbombela United. Before the outcomes of the case, both teams were tied in points. TS Sporting on number 14 in the log with 32 points, while Mbombela United were behind on number 15 because of the goal difference rule with 32 points.
It is reported that Mbombela United played Sabelo Ndzinisa, who was signed by TS Sporting before signing with Mbombela. Ndzinisa who played 20 games was also banned for 2 years.
Mbombela were only left with just 9 points after docked points. It is still unknown what will happen to Royal Eagles who were officially relegated, if they will replace relegated Mbombela and go to the play offs.
