South African international defender Morgan Gould may have some explaining to do after an incredible ‘punch tackle’ on Wits striker Getaneh Kebede.

The unbelievable incident occurred during the Kaizer Chiefs’ 2-1 win over their rivals, although it was this knockout punch which stole the headlines post-match.

Gould struck his opponent with a left-jab to the jaw, with Kebede instantly sent sprawling to the floor. However, the referee, seemingly oblivious to the forceful nature of the ‘tackle’, only awarded a free-kick.

To make matters worse, the 30-year-old has since taken to Twitter to apologise for the incident, insisting it was simply a ‘freak accident’.

Whether the PSL views it the same way remains to be seen, but Gould is yet to receive a ban of any sort for the incident.
