It was a shocking result for Kaizer Chiefs who were hoping to take a step closer to their first piece of silverware under Steve Komphela.
The Chiefs coach has received much criticism during his time at the club, and it all reached boiling point when the club got knocked out of the Nedbank Cup.
Even more shocking was the fan reaction, and those violent spectators spilling onto the field at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
Here's how the South African media and high profile players reacted to those horrorfic events, including footage shared by the media.
This is absolutely insane. I understand the emotions behind a game of football but this is taken to another level. Lives being put at risk, brutally attacking a WOMEN thats not even part of the reason behind their barbaric act. So disturbinghttps://t.co/8zAF4U7IPd— Janine Van Wyk (@Janinevanwyk5) April 21, 2018

What kind of disgusting human being kicks a defenseless woman down on the ground in the face until she loses consciousness??? We need arrests here, not just sanctions forcing the club to play behind closed doors. More must be done. #nedbankcup— Marc Lewis (@MarcLewisZA) April 22, 2018
This is not ok. The last 10 seconds are HORRIFIC. There are NO words to describe this behaviour. Barbaric is too mild. @KaizerChiefs fans, do not be surprised if broadcasters refuse to show your games live #BanTheFans pic.twitter.com/BpIDnTxFZo— Cindy Poluta (@CindyPoluta) April 22, 2018
