In what has become an all too common occurrence down the years, Kaizer Chiefs fans have landed the club in hot water over their unruly behaviour on Sunday.
Amakhosi’s winless start to the 2023-24 DStv Premiership season under new head coach Molefi Ntseki continued when they were beaten 1-0 by TS Galaxy at the Mbombela Stadium.
A section of Chiefs supporters turned on Ntseki after the match as they launched missiles at the Glamour Boys’ former head of technical and youth development, who had to be escorted down the tunnel by police under a riot shield.
The Premier Soccer League has now brought charges against Chiefs, with the Soweto giants set to appear before a disciplinary committee on August 29.
“I can confirm I have preferred charges of misconduct against Kaizer Chiefs. This as a result of a missile-throwing incident that transpired in a match between themselves and TS Galaxy on Sunday,” PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu said.
“They have been scheduled to appear before the PSL DC for Tuesday, August 29.”
A similar incident last season saw Arthur Zwane face the fans’ wrath after a 1-0 defeat to SuperSport United at the at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on May 13 as he ended up suffering a facial injury from a riot shield when he was led down under tunnel under police protection.
