Kaizer Chiefs have been charged with misconduct by PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu. This comes in the aftermath of the club’s supporters’ unruly behaviour at the Mbombela Stadium following their 1-0 defeat to TS Galaxy on Sunday afternoon.
CONFIRMATION OF CHARGES LAID AGAINST KAIZER CHIEFS
Fans expressed their dissatisfaction by throwing objects towards Kaizer Chiefs’ head coach, Molefi Ntseki, requiring police escort after the match.
On Tuesday evening, PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu confirmed that charges of misconduct had been levelled against Kaizer Chiefs.
“I can confirm that I preferred charges of misconduct against Kaizer Chiefs football club,” said Majavu on Tuesday evening. “This is as a result of the missile-throwing incident that transpired in a match between themselves and TS Galaxy this past Sunday.’’ As reported by FARPOSTZA
REPEATED INCIDENTS OF MISCONDUCT: A CAUSE OF CONCERN
Regrettably, this is not an isolated occurrence, as such incidents have become a troublesome trend among Kaizer Chiefs supporters.
Last season, a similar incident took place at the Royal Mofokeng Stadium, where fans hurled objects at then-head coach Arthur Zwane, resulting in his injury.
Going back to the 2017/18 season when Steve Komphela was in charge, supporters exhibited similar behaviour after a 3-0 loss to Chippa United.
The missile-throwing incident during their match against TS Galaxy triggered these charges, highlighting the severity of the fans’ actions. The club now faces potential consequences for their supporters’ misconduct.
Kaizer chiefs currently lie 13th on the log table with just a point after three games and pressure is mounting on Coach Ntseki to produce positive results for the club if they are to compete for the league this season.
Kaizer Chiefs will appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee on August 29, 2023, to answer the charges of misconduct. This hearing will determine the severity of the penalties imposed on the club, which may include substantial fines, point deductions, or even matches played without spectators.
