Cape Town - In the aftermath of their 2-0 final-day PSL defeat to Kaizer Chiefs, Chippa United CEO Peter Koutroulis has lashed out at what he calls Chiefs' public use of muthi.
The Daily Sun website reports that an unidentified man was stationed at the northern end of the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday, appearing to rub the uprights of the respective goal posts with an unidentified substance emanating from two bottles.
The Chilli Boys boss was outraged at what he witnessed, slamming the PSL champions' blatant use of the substance, believed to enhance a team's chances of winning, while they themselves could ill-afford defeat.
The relegation-threatened club had a goal controversially disallowed during the second half before missing a penalty late in the match, which struck one of the uprights allegedly tampered with.
However, Chiefs denied using anything of the sort, with manager Stuart Baxter laughing off the claims, stating that if it is indeed muthi being used, that it has worked its magic.
Despite the loss, Chippa managed to avoid relegation as AmaZulu faltered against Maritzburg United, while Moroka Swallows' margin of victory over Bloemfontein Celtic was not big enough to leapfrog Chippa in the final reckoning.
