  • Kaizer Chiefs pleaded guilty to two disciplinary committee charges
  • Disgruntled Chiefs fans have used plastic bottles to express their dissatisfaction with results
  • The Glamour Boys were fined R200,000 relating to two separate incidents

Passion and the failure to meet expectations can overflow from the other side of the touchline.

Kaizer Chiefs will be forced to pay after being found guilty for the second time this season.

Chiefs admitted to two counts of misconduct connected with fans’ behaviour at fixtures played on September 20 and 23.

The PSL outfit have been warned to control the behaviour of their supporters or face further punishment.

TimesLive reports that supporters will be banned from the stadium for one game if Amakhosi are again found guilty of such charges anytime in the next six months.

Chiefs coach, Molefi Ntseki has been the target of the fans’ angst after they demanded more from their team this season.

Fed up with the poor start, fans pelted Ntseki with bottles following a 1-0 defeat to TS Galaxy at Mbombela Stadium in August.

Ntseki was again met with anger following a 1-0 midweek defeat to Supersport United in Polokwane.

A few days later, he received repeated abuse at the Lucas Moripe Stadium when a Peter Shalulile-inspired Mamelodi Sundowns eliminated Chiefs from the MTN8.

No such incidents have occurred at any Johannesburg venue, but fans will still be watching intently as Chiefs host Eric Tinkler’s Cape Town City tonight at the FNB Stadium.

Chiefs sit sixth on the log with 11 points from eight games, and are 13 points behind Mamelodi Sundowns.

Fans demand Ntseki's sacking

Sports Brief earlier reported that some angry Kaizer Chiefs fans have called for the sacking of Molefi Nteski following their loss to SuperSport United.

A 2nd-minute goal by Terrence Dzvukamanja was enough to ensure that AmaKhosi were defeated away from home on Wednesday evening.

After the game, police officers had to stop irate Chiefs fans from attacking Ntseki, who watched as his boys were outplayed. Disgruntled fans could be heard saying that the club manager must be fired.
