Jaure is set to appear before the league’s disciplinary committee for his violent conduct towards referee Thabani Bhamala.

The Dynamos defender who has gone beyond the call of duty this season – with a brilliant show which has seen the champions conceding just 17 goals in 26 matches — was red-carded following a clash with Highlanders striker Njabulo Ncube in the first half of the match.

But the pint-sized defender took matters into his own hands as he charged towards Bhamala apparently infuriated by his decision. He had to be restrained by teammates.

It is understood that the referee who called the shots in that match has written a damning report to the Premier Soccer League (PSL) on the player’s conduct.

And after analysing the report, PSL has condemned Jaure’s behaviour and disclosed he would be summoned to the league’s disciplinary hearing.

Bhamala said in his match report: “In the 30th minute I sentoff player number 82, N Ncube of Highlanders and player number 27, P Jaure Dynamos FC, for violent conduct.

“Following his sending off, P Jaure (Dynamos) insulted me using abusive language which he complemented with an attempt to physically assault me, but was restrained by his teammates,” part of the referee’s report to the PSL read.

PSL chief executive Kenny Ndebele said Jaure would be brought before the league’s disciplinary committee.

“The player Partson Jaure shall be summoned to appear before the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee in due course,” he said.

Should Jaure be found guilty, he will be left out for the selection of this year’s soccer stars.

According to rules in the selection of the outstanding players of the season, a player who has been brought before a disciplinary hearing and found guilty by the club or the league will not be considered for selection.

Steve Vickers — one of the experts during the selection of the outstanding players of the season — said Jaure might miss out if found guilty.

“If he is found guilty he will not be considered for selection. But just being brought before a disciplinary committee hearing does not exclude him from the selection process,” Vickers said.

The Dynamos defender is set to miss the next two matches against Triangle and Shabanie Mine.
