Epac’s General Secretary, Chiyamiko Lita, said the player was likely to face disciplinary action from the club.

“It is very unfortunate for the player, but good for football. We will also take action on him because his behaviour cost us the game,” Lita said.

Thotho reserved his comment on the punishment, saying he was waiting for communication on the incident.
