JOHANNESBURG - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) on Sunday condemned the unruly behaviour by Orlando Pirates fans during the MTN Top 8‘s second-leg semi-final against Supersport United.

The chaos started when Pirate's striker, Bennie McCarthy was sent off just before half-time at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto on Saturday. 

Supersport goalkeeper Rowen Vernandez was hit on the head with a live fire cracker during the match.

Orlando Pirates lost the match, 3-0.  

PSL spokesperson Connie Mutshumi said the safety of players and fans is their priority.

“We do not appreciate such negative behaviour from the fans. The necessary steps will be taken. It is up to the prosecutor to take the necessary action.”

Meanwhile, Orlando Pirate spokesperson Mickey Modisane said it was still too early to point fingers.

“We still have to get the match commissioner and chief of security report. It is still premature for us to come out and reprimand anybody because it looks like the incident might have come from both sides.”
