Steven Pienaar is expected to return to the Randburg Magistrate's Court in South Africa today on an assault charge.
Pienaar has denied kicking and punching Thabang Mnisi, the son of Public Service and Administration Deputy Minister Ayanda Dlodlo at a nightclub in Sandton, Johannesburg, in June.
The case was postponed until October 12, as Pienaar was unable to travel to South Africa because of a muscle injury he sustained while playing for Everton against West Bromwich Albion in the United Kingdom on Saturday, his lawyer Cliff Alexander said.
“A medical certificate was handed to the court, which was accepted by the magistrate,” he said.

Person should be punished if guilty but the cynical side of me thinks Everton will be ok on this one...

Had hoped this would be sorted quick as possible (one way or another). If Pienaar is deliberately stalling it makes me less confident that he is expecting a good outcome.
As someone has already suggested, maybe the closer we are to the ACoN the more leniency he can expect if he is found guilty. ;)

This guy Piennar roughed up, he's laying somewhere in a coma?
