CAPS United utility player Hardlife Zvirekwi and his club have been fined by the Premier Soccer League for improper behaviour in their match against Buffaloes in April.

The Harare side and one of its star players were fined a total of $4,250 for contravening league rules and regulations after pouring urine on the Buffaloes technical area during a league match at Gwanzura in April this year.

Zvirekwi was fined $2,500 in his individual capacity, of which $500 was suspended for the rest of the season.

Caps United were also separately fined after their fans attacked Buffaloes goalkeeper Blessing Mwandimutsira with missiles, including a bottle of urine, during the same match.

United were ordered to pay a fine of $1,750, of which $250 was suspended for the rest of the season on condition they do not commit a similar offence.

Part of the judgement read: “Hardlife Zvirekwi be and is hereby ordered to pay a fine of USD$2 500-00, USD$500-00 of which is suspended for the rest of the season on condition he is not convicted of any offence where he behaves in a manner which brings the league or any of its sponsors into disrepute.

“The effective fine of USD$2 000-00 together with costs of hearing should be paid by 31st August 2014.”

When the judgement was announced on Wednesday, it was not yet clear if Zvirekwi, a first offender, would lodge an appeal.

Caps United were also found guilty of bringing football into disrepute when, during the same match, their fans abused Buffaloes goalkeeper Blessing Mwandimutsira by pelting him with missiles.

The club was fined US$1 750 with a suspended US$250 on condition they do not commit the same offence for the rest of the season.

They were handed 31 August to pay the fine but have not yet shown intention to appeal against the ruling.

“The effective fine of US$2 000 together with costs of hearing should be paid by 31st August 2014,” read the judgment.
