Arthur Zwane suffers facial cut after he was struck by bottle after SuperSport loss(Video)
Embattled Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane was hit by a bottle and suffered a facial cut after a 1-0 South African Premiership loss to SuperSport United on Saturday.
The penultimate-round defeat meant Chiefs cannot qualify for either of the two CAF competitions next season, and condemned them to finishing not higher than fourth in the league.
When various objects were hurled at Zwane and his players in the northwest mining town of Rustenburg, the coach was struck underneath the eye and needed treatment.
Police escorted the players to safety as a disastrous season for the famed Johannesburg club continued.
Before being hit, Zwane criticised his players, accusing them of “going through the motions” in a match they had to win to have a chance of CAF qualification.
