JOHANNESBURG – The Premier Soccer League on Saturday charged Kaizer Chiefs with misconduct and bringing the league into disrepute.

Kaizer Chiefs supporters threw objects on to the pitch during their Premiership fixture against Chippa United on April 7 at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

The Amakhosi lost the match 3-0, with fans chanting "Steve Must Go!" in reference to Chiefs coach Steve Komphela, who has yet to taste any trophy success in his third season in charge at Naturena.

Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung, the son of chairman Kaizer, was also criticised by the fans.

Chippa's goals were scored by Thabo Rakhale (25), Mxolisi Macuphu (78) and Edward Manqele (90).

The defeat was followed by a five-hour meeting between the players, coaches and top management to discuss the defeat, and club officials held another meeting afterwards to discuss a plan of action.

Chiefs released a statement during the week and promised that there would be a "complete overhaul" of the squad, which could see Komphela and a number of senior players getting the axe at the end of the season.

Kaizer Chiefs will appear before the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee on April 18 at 6pm.
