The MTN8 semi-final first leg tie between Chiefs and AmaZulu ended in an entertaining 1-1 draw last weekend, although it will also be remembered for the chaotic scenes at the end as referee Victor Gomes took exception with apparent antics from AmaZulu on the sidelines.

Ultimately, a couple of players who weren’t on the pitch were red-carded along with new goalkeeper coach Johan Abselon.

Gabadinho Mhango was one of the players who was disciplined, and according to Goal.com, AmaZulu FC president Sandile Zungu claims Mhango was provoked by an unnamed Chiefs official who “kicked him in the butt”. 

“I took the advice of Victor Hlongwane [on SABC 1’s Soccer Zone] regarding the discipline in AmaZulu to heart but in some instances, I do think that we are targeted,” Zungu told Metro FM. “I asked my team what happened [during the game against Chiefs]. Mhango was kicked in the butt by a Chiefs official … it was in the tunnel, he was provoked. I will address the issue of discipline within the team.”

Earlier in the game Gomes first red carded defender Veluyeke Zulu, but it was his decision to brandish red cards to AmaZulu players and staff in the dug out that led to some chaotic scenes.

“What happened between me and Victor [Gomes], but Victor there is always a spectacle around, always,” recently-departed AmaZulu coach Brandon Truter commented afterwards, as quoted by SABC Sport.

“He sent Keagan Buchanan off the pitch for broken sock and then while Keagan is off the pitch George Maluleka is down, so I’m shouting at George because if you can’t get the treatment you cant get off the pitch, that’s the rule – you get treatment then you get off and then I’m two men down. I’m shouting at George ‘get up’ the he books me, so I don’t know, so we not allowed to coach now, we no allowed to speak to players. If he wants to control everything, let him control everything then.

“Gabadinho [Mhango] didn’t deserve to get a send-off; the official told him to put on a shirt he delayed and then a red card, he didn’t deserve to be sent off … I don’t want to speculate and I don’t wanna comment more on anything as well, but it was plain for everybody to see, thank you.”
