Pirates fans run riot at Loftus |
Orlando Pirates supporters invaded the pitch and attacked everyone inside the pitch including media personnel. This was after Mamelodi scored the 6th goal of the match that saw Pirates lose 6-0 to Downs.
The fans and supporters were baying for the , coach , technical team and players blood as they are frustrated with the club’s current form.
Police were attacked, securities ram for their lives as chairs flew in the air, SuperSport television equipment damaged. Media personnel were attacked with some losing cameras, laptops, phones and wallets.
Pirates fans expressed their emotions and want the club chairman Dr. Irvin Khoza to start listening to their views. They are not happy with the club not having a coach, players performance and mostly the club’s poor performance.
They want immediate intervention and action from the management. One of the supporters stated that he drove with his family from KZN to witness such a humiliation drubbing of their club and vowed not to come to the stadium until the team pick up their socks. They feel that with all this the coach can’t be blamed as the players are lacking fighting spirit and believe that Muhsin Ertugral saw this before handing his resignation and left the club.
This was Pirates second huge loss this season from a Pretoria side. The club lost their first 2016/2017 league game to SuperSport United with a 6-1 margin.
