It has been reported that the Siwelewele are furious with the management of the team and are seeking answers to who is the actually owner of the team.

“This thing started about five games ago,” said a Celtic supporter, who insisted on remaining anonymous.

“We were boycotting the other games, because the management at the team does not want to tell us who is the owner of the club. We learned that Max Tshabalala is not the owner of the club. They just gave him the Chairman position, so we want to know who the owner of the team is.”

Celtic coach Serame Letsoaka says he doesn’t have control over things that are happening outside, but was disappointed with the stadium security for not taking action in time.

“It is not for me to deal with, but I think the security at the stadium could have intervened earlier. As soon as the people started throwing things at each other, I felt that’s when they should have started making arrests,” said Letsoaka.

“I think the security took their time until the fight was out of control, unfortunately I don’t have power to control things that happened outside.”
