'Training is not good enough for me and also when he's on the pitch he's not always taking his chances, ' he added of the former Maritzburg United hitman, who has scored six goals and provided two assists in 22 games in all competitions this season.

Already under pressure and unpopular with fans after a poor season, Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela resigned after the game saying he didn't want to be the catalyst for violence.

Reflecting post the match, Komphela said he believed the team did not deserve the results.

"If I'm the trigger for this (violence), then maybe one has to say 'maybe step aside.just stop the switch'".

Mabedi was the assistant to Komphela, who abruptly left Chiefs on Saturday without winning a single trophy during his three-year tenure following a 2-0 defeat to unfancied Free State Stars in the semifinals of the Nedbank Cup at the Moses Mabhida Stadium at the weekend.

"We have to take responsibility and accept that we are faced with challenges", Motaung said.

Earlier this month Kaizer Chiefs was fined R250 000, of which R200 000 was suspended for 24 months.

After this scenes calls were made that Komphela, who was already under huge pressure, to vacate his position and the tone of their supporters didn't change despite the league coming to an end next month.

"My analysis tells me that they need a local coach but can not really think of anyone for now, but it should be someone who understands our game and players for them to start winning again", Mayo explained. Later, riot police, sheltering behind a white armored vehicle, shot volleys of tear gas into the stands.

Kaizer Chiefs will likely face heavy scrutiny in the coming days after the Premier Soccer League condemned the ugly scenes in Durban on Saturday night.

"Hooliganism and thuggery of this nature has no place in football and acts of violence perpetrated by individuals are witnessed last night can not be tolerated. The league will work closely with law enforcement to ensure that those responsible for this hooliganism are subjected to judicial process", the statement said.
