The title-deciding match between CAPS United and FC Platinum turned violent during the half-time with the presidents of both sides engaging in a verbal clash at the stands.

The incident happened after Nsiala Mawete Guyve got a red card for shoving a CAPS official just as the players were about to leave the pitch for the break.

The hosts’ players had converged at the centre for a pep talk after the half-time whistle, but Guyve went there to disturb. This ensured a clash with the forward receiving a red card while the Green Machine’s goalkeeper coach Witness Mukhuli also getting his marching orders.

The chaos didn’t end there as the FC Platinum chairman Evans Mthombeni and CAPS United president Farai Jere exchanged harsh words at the stands.

The reason for the clash was not clear but it’s likely because of some black magic issues.

The match ended 1-0 in favour of FC Platinum courtesy of Perfect Chikwende’s 60th minute effort.

The result gave the Platinum Boys their third successive league triumph.
