JOHANNESBURG: The Glamour Boys are yet to register a win in the DSTV Premiership this season.
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) Disciplinary Committee has hauled up Kaizer Chiefs before a disciplinary hearing for violent conduct by their fans following the club’s 1-0 defeat to TS Galaxy at Mbombela Stadium on Sunday.
“I can confirm that I preferred charges of misconduct against Kaizer Chiefs Football, this is a result of a missile-throwing incident that transpired in the match between themselves and TS Galaxy this past Sunday,” said Advocate Zola Majavu, a PSL prosecutor. The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, 29 August.
Expressing their frustrations with the results and the club’s poor performance, the Kaizer Chiefs’ faithful hurled objects, such as bottles and cans, at their coach Molefi Ntseki.
Consequently, the coach had to be escorted out of the field by the police as the fans were baying for his blood.
The Glamour Boys are yet to register a win in the DSTV Premiership this season. They have lost two matches and drew one.
The fans expect a change of fortunes this season following changes in the technical team, with Ntseki having replaced Arthur Zwane, who was the head coach last season. Zwane has since been demoted to assist the former Bafana Bafana coach, but the results are still not forthcoming for the Naturena-based club.
The club, which is experiencing an eight-year-long trophy drought, its longest ever, has pleaded with the fans for patience with Ntseki, whose appointment startled the local football fraternity.
Up next for Chiefs is welcoming Amazulu FC at home on Saturday, 26 August, in search of their first maximum points and a move away from a relegation zone, where they lie 13th on the log.
