Shabanie Mine FC has apologised to the PSL, ZIFA and the SRC over remarks made last week on their official Facebook page, criticising the way the game was being administered.
The Zvishavane based side says the post was made by unknown culprits who had hacked the page.
The Facebook post, which had been already deleted, questioned PSL about the officiating of league matches, broadcasting rights and how they use the money taken from clubs. It also stated that other clubs get preferential treatment from the authorities.
