Police partly to blame for riot, South Africa's football boss says

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela announced his resignation after the incident. "It besmirches the reputation of the club and the millions of well-mannered supporters who make up the Kaizer Chiefs family; it brings the game of football itself into disrepute and, on a wider scale, it reflects very badly on our people and our country when the footage is disseminated across the world", Motaung said.

Fans started banging objects and once the referee blew the whistle, they started running onto the ground.

"If I'm the trigger for this (the violence), then maybe one has to say, "maybe step aside", Komphela said.

"We join the rest of South Africa in hoping that these perpetrators are brought to book as soon as possible and that the full force of law is implemented against them", he said.

"For the new coach, the mandate will be to win the league, but it will take time and patience is what Chiefs supporters do not have at the moment", continued Mayo. "We can not allow the situation to continue".

Kaizer Chiefs, however, were stunned in front of a capacity crowd at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday as Stars triumphed 2-0 to advance through to the Nedbank Cup final with the result leading to scenes of violence and hooliganism in the stadium.

"My analysis tells me that they need a local coach but can not really think of anyone for now, but it should be someone who understands our game and players for them to start winning again", Mayo explained.

"Hooliganism and thuggery of this nature has no place in football and acts of violence perpetrated by individuals witnessed last night can not be tolerated".

"PSL (Premier Soccer League) and stadium management must provide answers about what happened in Moses Mabhida Stadium", the sports minister said. Forty-three people died and 158 were hurt in a stampede during a match between Chiefs and the Orlando Pirates in 2001.
