Mafco FC striker Richard Mbulu was whisked away in a police van after their 2-0 defeat to Nyasa Big Bullets in the TNM Super League at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
The Peoples Team, who moved to second position with 48 points on the log table, scored their goals through Mussa Manyenje and Muhammad Sulumba.
However, after the game when everybody thought peace would prevail, some irate Bullets fans bayed for Mbulu’s blood as they converged outside the VIP behind the dressing room.
The fans were demanding for Mbulu, who they accused of beating their veteran midfielder during the Carlsberg Cup game involving the two teams in Chitowe.
Prior to their meeting in this cup game, there was a scuffle, after some Bullets players including Fischer Kondowe were man handled by Mafco players.
On Sunday, the Bullets fans wanted to exact revenge on what happened in Chitowe, as they wanted to beat up Mbulu. Thanks to the Police, who whisked Mbulu away in a Police van.
It must also be noted that even before the kick-off the match there were scuffles involving Bullets fans and Mafco players.
Upon arrival at the stadium, Mafco players dropped off from their bus outside the stadium, but they were refused to enter inside the dressing room gates on foot.
The angry Bullets fans demanded the whole Mafco team to enter inside the dressing room gates using their bus, a thing that the players refused.
The whole match delayed almost for an hour, as the Bullets fans insisted that Mafco players would not access the dressing room gates, unless they use a bus.
Peace prevailed after almost an hour, and Mafco kicked-off the game without their players warming up in the field of play.
Mafco FC Coach Thomas Maloya also cried foul after the game of the whole saga and stressed it affected his players.
“We were denied to enter in the stadium, and we stayed almost an hour waiting outside under a tree. My players were even soaked up with the rains. This is not football and we hope Sulom will act on this behavior,” said Maloya.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
