The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has confirmed that they have written to Benni McCarthy, Steve Komphela and Owen Da Gama after the trio made comments in the media regarding match officials.
Earlier in the week it was confirmed that the league had written to Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane in relation to comments attributed to him about match officials, when he was given five days to respond.
Seemingly ramping up its disciplinary actions, the league then wrote to Zlatko Krmpotic at Polokwane City over the same issue, before confirming on Friday that McCarthy, Komphela and Da were also in the firing line.
The standard of refereeing in the PSL has been questioned by coaches, fans and media alike in recent weeks.
