Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairman Dr Irvin Khoza will address a press conference at 12.30pm on Monday afternoon.

Khoza, who is also the chairman of Orlando Pirates, is expected to speak about the violence that erupted on Saturday night at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban following Kaizer Chiefs’ 2-0 defeat to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals.

Coach Steve Komphela resigned with immediate effect at the post-match press conference.

The PSL condemned the violence on Sunday.

“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,” the PSL said in a statement on Sunday.

“Hooliganism and thuggery of this nature has no place in football, and acts of violence perpetrated by individuals 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 roleplayers.”
