PSL prosecutor, Nande Becker, has confirmed that he has resigned as the league’s head of legal. SunSport has reliably learnt that Becker resigned, unclear whether it could be related to the Cape Town City versus Kaizer Chiefs no-show debacle this weekend.
Becker has been doing an incredible job for the PSL, taking no sides but throwing the rulebook at whichever club that failed to uphold the prescribed football laws.
Becker, a practising Attorney with 36 years of experience, has been the PSL prosecutor since 1 January 2013.
In confirming that he has left his plum job, Becker told SunSport in short on Sunday: “Correct. My race is run.”
It was brought to SunSport’s attention that Becker was still happily interested in pursuing his duties last week, and this will catch many officials by surprise.
“Yes, the PSL prosecutor Nande Becker has resigned,” said the insider who refused to be named, as he is not allowed to speak to the media.
The insider also took a swipe at Becker, saying he was a “joke” and “bully” to clubs during his time as the PSL prosecutor.
“Nobody in the PSL is happy with this guy,” revealed the insider.
“He is an absolute bully, and the bottom line is that he resigned.”
Whether this will come as massive blow to the PSL remains to seen, as the league is flooded with disciplinary cases.
