Cape Town City FC owner John Comitis said the club is looking at the incident which saw Erasmus kick Highlands Park’s MothobiMvala during a league match on Tuesday.
Erasmus was red-carded in the 19th minute, leaving the Cape Town side with just ten men for a large part of the match which they ended up drawing 1-1.
The club’s owner said that while he understood the frustration, he was ‘disappointed’ with Erasmus, even if he could understand his frustration with the referees.
“He was being badgered continuously, you know. And on top of that the referee does not give him the protection he needed.”
But Comitis added that his player did not act in ‘the spirit
of the game’.
“I like it if my players put their bodies on the line and give their all. But there is a line you should not cross and I’m afraid he crossed that line, and I’m very disappointed. We as the club shall have an internal hearing to take action against him.”
