Caps United To Pay For Fans Behaviour

This has been revealed by Premier Soccer League chairman Twine Phiri who said a PSL disciplinary Committee will look at the matter and see what charge and sentence they can prefer on the Harare football giants.

Phiri, who ironically is also the Caps United president, said the Premier Soccer League did not condone violence adding that there were no sacred cows in the league and that appropriate action will be taken on the Green Machine.

Normally such behaviour by the Caps United fans go along with a heavy fine or being forced to play in an empty stadium when at home.

“Every club should learn to control its supporters and Caps will be charged on the behaviour of their supporters. Football is about entertainment not a place for war,’ said Phiri.

The match was abandoned in the 68th minute after the Green Machine’s fans threw missiles on the pitch after referee Ruzive Ruzive had dismissed Caps United defender Edmore Chafungamoyo following a second bookable offence. Caps had earlier had David Sengu also sent off by the referee.

By that time, Caps United were trailing Gunners 1-0 and appeared to be losing the game completely. Gunners are under the coaching guidance of Moses Chunga who only a few weeks ago left Caps United following pressure from the same supporters after the Green Machine were eliminated from the Banc ABC tournament by Highlanders.

The Premier Soccer League is trying to keep clean sheet in order to keep the numerous sponsors that have all of a sudden got involved in football. The league which did not have a sponsor for the past two years now have a sponsor in the form of Delta Beverages while Banc ABC have maintained their sponsorship of the top eight competition.

PSL Chief Executive Officer Kennedy Ndebele also told Radio VOP that another knockout tournament involving all the 16 teams in the Premiership is also on the cards.
