A complaint against Mosimane was made by a security guard at the King Zwelithini Stadium in an Absa Premiership clash against AmaZulu on Sunday.

A fracas took place between security guards and the Sundowns technical team when two supporters invaded the pitch after the final whistle.

It was later confirmed that Nathi Ngwenya of Ngwelela Protection Services, a security company with AmaZulu FC had made a complaint against Mosimane.

TimesLive reports that KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Lt-Colonel Thulani Zwane confirmed that the matter was still under investigation.

"No one has been arrested‚" Zwane said. "It’s early… a week hasn't passed yet. What's the rush really‚ what's the rush‚ huh?

"In short‚ I can say we are still conducting our investigation and once we’ve finished our investigation we will then go to court for a decision.

"Even when we get to court it will depend on how busy the prosecutor is. There are many cases he's dealing with."

In a post-match interview Mosimane rubbished reports that he had punched a security guard while condemning the officials for how they handled the two Sundowns supporters.

"There were no punches. You are trying to make a scene. Where were the punches?" he asked.

"Our supporters, two of them got onto the pitch. What do you do? You usher them out. You don't drag them like they are criminals.

"This thing of showing off that we can drag somebody off the pitch must end."
