Kaizer Chiefs appoint Patrick Mabedi as interim coach

1524491653_e08be

This is the shocking moment fans of South African football team Kaizer Chiefs invaded the pitch and attack stadium staff after losing a cup match.

Seats were ripped out of the stands and even fires were lit, and video footage on social media have emerged of one particular unsavoury incident in which a security guard was repeatedly kicked and hit with chairs by fans.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Jay Naicker said police had initially arrested two people but could only link Jojisa to the pitch invasion.

Kaizer Chiefs's Vino Maphosa says that while they will be launching a probe into the riot internally, the police are definitely investigating the assault of a security guard on the field.

Although the fans had previously expressed their dissatisfaction with Komphela and the team, Saturday night's pandemonium following the 2-0 loss to Free State Stars — which left the Chiefs with no chance of any silverware this season — was on a different scale.

Earlier reports said a female security guard was killed during the riot.

According to the AP, only two people have been arrested so far with more likely to come.

The result sees Ea Lla Koto move into their first final since 1999 (when they were beaten to the Rothmans Cup trophy by Mamelodi Sundowns), while the Amakhosi will go trophyless for a third successive season under beleaguered coach Steve Komphela.

Meanwhile, South African Sports Minister Thokozile Xasa is demanding answers from the PSL and Stadium Management SA as to what really happened in Durban.

In a statement on Sunday, the PSL said "hooliganism and thuggery of this nature has no place in football".

Motaung said the club would cooperate with law enforcement agencies and the Premier Soccer League to ensure the perpetrators were brought to book.

We call on football bosses to educate fans about the importance of accepting the outcome of the any game to avoid such a disgrace of vandalizing of the properly in our stadiums.
