Two people have reportedly been arrested in connection with the violence.

This follows the resignation of Steve Komphela who called it quits after a supporters' uproar over the team's performance this season. "The coach is not safe", said Chiefs general manager Bobby Motaung.

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.

Although the club understood the fans' frustration that they lost the match, "venting frustration through rampant thuggery is totally unacceptable".

Kaizer Chief's head coach, Steve Komphela resigned with immediate effect following yesterday's match.

Mabedi, who captained the Glamour Boys during his playing days, took charge of his first training session on Sunday as the team prepares for Tuesday's league encounter against Golden Arrows.

I'm not going to say he's a bad fighter, he's a very good fighter, and he won a world title, so you have to respect that. If my prediction comes true and Khan wins, they have to make the Kell Brook vs.

"We will wait and see, but the guy who will come in must be given time to re-organise things at the club, there should be no rush for him to implement his ideas", the former SuperSport United player said.

After this scenes calls were made that Komphela, who was already under vast pressure, to vacate his position and the tone of their supporters didn't change despite the league coming to an end next month. Later, riot police, sheltering behind a white armored vehicle, shot volleys of tear gas into the stands. "The league will work closely with law enforcement to ensure that those responsible for this hooliganism are subjected to judicial process", the statement said.

"Hooliganism and thuggery of this nature have no place in football and acts of violence perpetrated by individuals. last night can not be tolerated", the PSL said in a statement.

Moses Mabhida Stadium was opened in 2009 and was a central venue during the 2010 World Cup.

Kaizer Chiefs will likely face heavy scrutiny in the coming days after the Premier Soccer League condemned the ugly scenes in Durban on Saturday night. I will not be associated with Chiefs if this is the way the supporters behave.
