The behaviour of the Pirates supporters did not sit well with the former Minister of Labour

Former SA Reserve Bank governor Tito Mboweni has called for Orlando Pirates to be banned from the Premier Soccer League (PSL) for two seasons.

This is after Pirates fans interrupted the match between their team and Mamelodi Sundowns at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Disgruntled Pirates also damaged SuperSport's cable which disrupted television feed, before invading the pitch in the 82nd minute with Sundowns leading 6-0.

Mboweni took to Twitter to suggest that the Soweto giants should be punished.

However, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) president Julius Malema, who is a well-known Pirates supporter, was quick to respond to Mboweni's tweet.

 
After calm was restored in the stadium after an hour, the match resumed with Sundowns holding on to secure a commanding and historic 6-0 win over Pirates.
