Mazembe fans assault Chitembwe

By Paul Mundandi

CAPS United coach Lloyd Chitembwe, who made history yesterday by becoming the first Green Machine coach to guide the side to the CAF Champions League group stages, was assaulted by a TP Mazembe supporter before kick-off.

Chitembwe was moving in the tunnel when a TP Mazembe fan rushed towards him and slapped him on the head. He got hold of the guy and a number of officials and two players came to his rescue.

Some of the TP Mazembe fans had evaded the security and then quickly ran away from the scene.

On Saturday, a man believed to be a TP Mazembe sangoma was filmed digging parts of the giant stadium pitch and planting some substances.

“I was walking in the tunnel and I just heard somebody saying that ‘this is the CAPS United coach.’ I was then slapped on the head and I reacted by holding the guy.

“One of the bouncers came to my rescue as he took over the situation.

“I did not make a police report as I wanted to concentrate on the job at hand but I feel he was given a few lessons by our bouncers.

“It’s very primitive to fight at soccer matches and if one has to fight it must be players who must do it on the field in a battle of their skills and not with fists,” said Chitembwe.

About 200 TP Mazembe fans watched the match. The Herald

      All these teams above have gone through, so can you enlighten me as to how they gonna be grouped,?

    • The format has since changed. Starting this year there will be 4 groups of 4 teams each. The top 2 in each grp qualifies to the quarter finals. The quarter finals will follow the UEFA Champs league format of two teams knocking each other out right to the final

    Chitembwe is a couch who couches a team with a public following and he knows that what was done by that thug who slapped him was wrong and yet he brags about his thugs beating him up. This guy must be far away from civilization if he is not lying that is. They couldn’t beat him up at the DRC but here and there is no police report??? NONSENSE. By the way congratulations Caps United – thats a first and a good one too.

  • lot chitakasha

    Respect to Chitembwe,he is our hero but he should not put himself on a pedestal..a slap on the head is bad but remember this is the man who once turned into a cobra during one match at Rufaro..the spitting cobra! Football is like that,it raises emotions,people stray from the narrow and straight. Further article says TP Mazembe fans yet only one guy slapped Chitembwe..our reporters can be very sensational sometimes.
