Safa communications manager Dominic Chimhavi has confirmed that referee Victor Hlungwani has been "put on ice” for not wearing the Outsurance kit when he officiated the Black Leopards/Bloemfontein Celtic match at the Thohoyandau Stadium.

The 42-year-old referee, who was also verbally abused by Leopards boss David Thidiela after the match, did not wear because it clashed with the Celtic kit.

“Hlungwani and the match commissioner were asked to explain what happened in the match and why they didn’t put on the OUTsurance gear‚” Chimhavi told TimesLive.

“In their defence‚ they did not put on the kit because it clashes with that of Bloemfontein Celtic,” he added.
