Earlier this month, chaos broke out after a unsatisfactory PSL defeat against Chippa United at the FNB Stadium. Chiefs fans pelted players and staff with objects.
After this scenes calls were made that Komphela, who was already under immense pressure, to vacate his position and the tone of their supporters didn’t change despite the league coming to an end next month.
