Kaizer Chiefs Charged By PSL For Disrepute & Misconduct Amid Stadium Violence

Kaizer Chiefs have been charged by the Premier Soccer League for bringing the amusement into offensiveness and for wrongdoing following the observer brutality at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday night.

Eighteen individuals were harmed, stadium seats were broken and consumed and security work force were assaulted after Chiefs lost 2-0 to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup semi-last.

Earlier on Monday, PSL chairman Dr Irvin Khoza was reluctant to comment on the type of sanctions that Chiefs may face, saying that the independence of the PSL disciplinary committee was “sacrosanct”.

But by late afternoon, the governing body issued a statement to announce that the Amakhosi will face a disciplinary hearing on May 3.

“The Premier Soccer League has charged Kaizer Chiefs FC with bringing the League into disrepute and misconduct.

“The charges follow Saturday night’s Nedbank Cup fixture against Free State Stars FC where supporters invaded the pitch, assaulted some supporters and security officials, and damaged property at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

“Kaizer Chiefs will appear before the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee on 3 May 2018 at 18h00.”

Just last week, Chiefs were fined R250 000 – of which R200 000 was suspended for two years – for not providing adequate security in their 3-0 defeat to Chippa United at the FNB Stadium on April 7.

Spectators pelted the Chiefs players and then-coach Steve Komphela with objects as they left the pitch.

Komphela resigned after the cup defeat on Saturday night, and Patrick Mabedi was announced as the interim coach earlier on Monday.
