"But you can't fault the many missed opportunities", he said.

Orlando Pirates will play Tuesday's league game against Bidvest Wits behind closed doors after they were found guilty of similar fan misbehaviour dating back to February 2017.

Hundreds of South African soccer fans disgruntled at the performance of their team rioted at a game on Saturday night.

The scenes that occurred at Moses Mabhida Stadium were one of the lowest moments in South African soccer in recent years, but Free Stars Stars boss Luc Eymael has seen worse than that in his career.

The Amakhosi were dumped out of the Nedbank Cup on Saturday evening, after losing 2-0 to Free State Stars.

Kaizer Chiefs fans were mainly responsible for the riot as they set fires in the stands, ripped up parts of the stadium, invaded the field and attacked security guards and others, including television camera operators. A man then twice kicked him in the head.

She added, "Some days the actors don't even know what they are shooting, they are told on the set what they will shoot that day". It may have slipped to 25th in 2018, but that's mainly thanks to Disney's other big hitters like Marvel and Star Wars .

It is the second violent incident in a month involving Chiefs, who will now certainly have to cough up the remainder of their R200,000 suspended sentence for the first incident that followed the 3-0 loss to Chippa United, and will face bigger sanctions.

There were social media reports on Sunday that the guard had died as a result of her injuries sustained at the venue during the Nedbank Cup semi-final match.

As the supporters beat the guard, a woman can be heard shouting: "They are going to kill. Where are the police?"

Police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala confirmed on Sunday that two people had been arrested and were due to appear in court on Monday on charges of public violence and malicious damage to property.

The incident left 18 people injured, while one person (a security personnel) had to be taken to the nearest hospital for treatment.

Following the team's loss, Kaizer Chiefs' manager Bobby Motaung confirmed at a post-match press conference that coach Steve Komphela will resign. The club had already been fined $20,000 earlier in the season for fans throwing objects onto the field. "It besmirches the reputation of the club 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 very badly on our people and our country when the footage is disseminated across the world", Motaung said.
