Kaizer chiefs Bobby Motaung has warned fans to stay away from the stadium.

Chiefs play many of their home games in KZN, like they have in Cape Town and other cities previously, due to their large supporter base around the country.

But on Friday, Motaung issued a lengthy statement criticising the behaviour of those fans in April, and insisting that no one should arrive at Moses Mabhida on Saturday evening for the 6pm kickoff.

“We hope this sanction is a learning to the fans. Such behaviour goes against the very ethos of what Amakhosi stand for, which is Love & Peace,” Motaung said.

“It besmirches the reputation of the club, sponsors 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 badly on our people and our country when the footage is accordingly disseminated across the world.

The club regreted the ugly incident that played out.
