Larsen: Chippa should be docked points for breaking lockdown rules

Polokwane City head coach Clinton Larsen believes Chippa United should be punished for allegedly breaking the COVID-19 lockdown rules.

The South African Football Association (SAFA) revealed last month that Chippa are under investigation for reportedly training together.

The alleged training session took place before Minister of Sports Nathi Mthethwa announced that PSL teams can resume regular training.

Larsen reckons SAFA should look at what happened in Austria, where LASK Linz were deducted points for a similar transgression.

"LASK Linz in Austria were deducted six points because they broke protocol," Larsen told The Citizen.

"They were training and videos came out and they were training as a team when they have been following social distancing at training.

"I think if there is evidence against teams that have been cheating, the same should apply here in South Africa.

"Why should other teams have two or three weeks advantage over others with such big fixture congestion."
