Komphela's sweet victory over Pitso almost turned ugly after the final whistle, but Amakhosi fans weren't interested in what happened off the pitch

Steve Komphela finally registered his first win over Mamelodi Sundowns since taking over from Stuart Baxter at Kaizer Chiefs two years ago. 

There is no doubt that Amakhosi were the better team on the day, and looked the hungrier of the two teams, but to some Sundowns fans, the defeat wasn't much of a big deal. 

The 49-year-old was visibly excited to have finally put one past Pitso Mosimane whom he worked with at Bafana Bafana between 2010 and 2012. 

"This is unbelievable. If by chance you are given an opportunity to be at a leadership position and you still looking at position and forget the mission then you on the wrong track. Three points, two goals, I'm a man who doesn't seek vegeance. I'm a man on a mission. Not a man of position. Forgive me for that," Komphela said in the aftermath.  

Mosimane was lost for words in his post-match interviews, but his club fans had some interesting answers in reaction to the match.  

It may take time for Saturday's result sink in, especially for Komphela, who tried four times against Mosimane without success in the last two seasons.

Ironically, the win came on April Fools' Day (1st of April), and apparently, the Amakhosi coach had to pinch himself several times to be sure if he wasn't being pranked when Bangaly Soumahoro netted that own goal in the 78th minute.

As if we didn't have enough drama throughout the 90 minutes, Mosimane attacked one of Amakhosi stewards soon after the final whistle. Komphela tried to calm things down, but little did he know that Mosimane had other ideas. Could this be the beginning of a fierce rivarly between Komphela and Mosimane? Watch below and decide.

Chiefs' fans however, didn't entertain the altercation and remained true to their slogan: 'Love and Peace'.
