Bucs' No 1 supporter assaulted – claim

Orlando Pirates supporter Mzion Mofokeng alleged assaulted

Posted: 7 December 2010 Time: 06:35 am

The South African Football Supporters' Association says it has approached the PSL over hooliganism in local soccer, after an alleged assault of prominent Orlando Pirates supporter Mzion Mofokeng at the weekend. 

Mofokeng, Bucs' No1 supporter, was allegedly assaulted by a Kaizer Chiefs' fan on the stands during the Bucs' 3-0 loss to the Amakhosi in the Telkom Knockout Final at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night.   The supporters union says it will support Mofokeng in his quest for justice over the assault.   "Safsa condemns hooliganism in football. The alleged assault is, in our view, a criminal act of hooliganism committed by a person whose intentions are obviously taking our football backwards," says Safsa chairperson Colin Nxumalo in a statement.   "We should all work together to ensure that the perpetrator is brought to book. Safsa would like to state categorically that we will give our Deputy Chairperson all the necessary support in his decision to lay criminal charges against the alleged perpetrator.   "Such people have no role in our football; they are criminals who need to be eliminated from this beautiful game."   Nxumalo added that Safsa has submitted a proposal to the PSL and is now awaiting the league's response on how it plans to root-out hooliganism in football.

Dis cant be true, chiefs won & y would they assault a losing team members.Dat guy might have started the fight and he got beatings.Its rare that supporters of the winning team can start a fight but they tease you leading to a fight, like event in tembisa where KC suppoter was killed by OP supporter, Mzion come clean.

I hope the proposal also include stopping this nonsense of mixing supporters from different teams in the stands, each team ought to have its stand with its supporters. It gets emotional when your team is being massacred the way Chiefs mauled Pirates and anything can happen.

Even my friend who is a Chiefs supporter was nearly beaten, i think what saved him was the fact that he was not wearing a Chiefs replica, he wore casual. he couldn't celebrate the 3rd goal properly as we were surrounded by Pirates supporters. this could be avoided by following International best practices. PSL needs to look into this!

I witnessed a few instances of OP fans moering KC fans with vuvuzelas, one of those incidences happened just 3 rows in front of where I had seated. Police were called and I hope that small group of OP hooligans have been arrested.

How come no-one mentioned this?
