"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 morning.

Video footage shows fans damaging property, setting seats on fire, throwing chairs and knocking over camera equipment at the stadium.

Terrified players had to run for the safety of the dressing rooms as the enraged fans swept onto the field after the final whistle.

To Mayo, poor team selection led to unhappiness from the stands where Komphela benched the experienced Ramahlwe Mphahlele and opted for Joseph Molangoane in the right-back slot.

Police said Sunday that two people had been arrested and more arrests were imminent following the mayhem at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in the east coast city of Durban.

Chiefs also announced that Mabedi will be assisted by Arthur Zwane, another former player who served the club with distinction during his playing days.

New SRQ carrier Allegiant has safety record scrutinized on '60 Minutes'
Bill Nelson is calling for an investigation into the FAA for its reported handling of an Allegiant Air's poor safety record. Even after hearing about these issues, some passengers at the Des Moines Airport said they would still fly with Allegiant.

"What we saw today is not good for football". South Africa's worst soccer disaster was in 2001 when 43 supporters died in a crush at a game, also between the Chiefs and Pirates in Johannesburg.

"Chiefs are out of the league race, there's no chance for a trophy now and that is three years, it is sad to the supporters, but I don't know who can replace him to be honest", explained the reitred defender.

Motaung condemned the violence, and called on people "who claim to be our fans to stop this hooliganism immediately".

Chiefs were fined 250,000 rand (about $20,500/17,000 euros) this week after supporters flung missiles at Komphela after a heavy league loss in Soweto this month. "We are anxious about the safety of the players, the coach and supporters".

"Football is not about fights, we unite in football and I am disappointed about it and it is sad because Kaizer (Moatung) will have to pay the damages now", he concluded.
