Guilty Chiefs Await PSL Judgement
It has been confirmed by the Premier Soccer League that Kaizer Chiefs have pleaded guilty at a Disciplinary Committee hearing after the violence on April 21st.
The Amakhosi found themselves in hot water last month when unsavoury scenes played out at Moses Mabhida Stadium following their exit from the Nedbank Cup, scenes that ultimately led to the resignation of Steve Komphela.
Now, with the charges being heard on Wednesday, the PSL has confirmed that Chiefs pleaded guilty, although judgement has been reserved at this point in time, meaning that any punishment will only be laid out at a later date.
A statement from the league read, “Judgement has been reserved in respect of the sanction in the matter between Kaizer Chiefs FC and the Premier Soccer League following a Disciplinary Committee sitting on 09 May 2018.
“Kaizer Chiefs pleaded guilty to the charges of misconduct on the part of their supporters on 21 April 2018 during the Nedbank Cup fixture against Free State Stars FC where their supporters invaded the pitch, assaulted fellow supporters and security officials and damaged property at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.”
Chiefs’ rivals, Orlando Pirates, were recently forced to play behind closed doors after their fans were involved in fan violence at Loftus Stadium, and the Glamour Boys could potentially now face a similar punishment themselves.
