Kaizer Chiefs fans reacted with violence and anger after their club was knocked out by AmaZulu FC in the Premier Soccer League’s new Carling Knockout Cup at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
Chiefs followed Mamelodi Sundowns as one of the big giants to exit the competition in the first round.
Fans attack players and coaches
Chiefs coach Molefi Ntseki had to be escorted by the private security and a few SA police to the tunnel after the match and couldn’t do his post-match interview on the field for television cameras.
Some fans also invaded the pitch and tried to confront the players, who had to run for safety.
Video clips posted on social media showed chaotic scenes of fans throwing bottles, chairs, and other objects at the players and coaches, as well as fighting among themselves.
PSL to come hard at Chiefs
With Chiefs having been slapped with fines two times this season already, the Premier Soccer League DC is expected to hand the club’s fans a stadium ban.
The ban is expected to be between three to six months or around five to ten home matches.
