Premier Soccer League condemns hooligans after Kaizer Chiefs fans threaten to riot

The Premier Soccer League have revealed they 'cannot tolerate' the acts of violence that marred Kaizer Chiefs' Nedbank Cup semi-final against Free State Stars.
Amakhosi fans already showed an ugle sight earlier this month after threatening to riot at FNB Stadium following the team's 3-0 Absa Premiership loss to Chippa United.
Following last night's semi-final defeat to Ea Lla Koto, where Chiefs went down 2-0, the Soweto giants' supporters stormed the Moses Mabhida Stadium field in an attempt to intercept the players and coaches, before those in the stands began vandalising and looting property.
The PSL have since condemned the fans' actions and are set to launch a full investigation.
A statement from the league read: 'The Premier Soccer League strongly condemns acts of hooliganism and violence that took place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday night during the fixture between Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars.
Hooliganism and thuggery of this nature has no place in football and acts of violence perpetrated by individuals are witnessed last night cannot be tolerated.
The League will work closely with law enforcement to ensure that those responsible for this hooliganism are subjected to judicial processes.
The League is currently awaiting reports from all relevant role players.'
