DURBAN – There was enough security and officials were "adequately prepared" in the event chaos broke out in the Nedbank Cup match between Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars, Moses Mabhida Stadium general manager Vusi Mazibuko said on Sunday.

Angry supporters invaded the pitch on Saturday night, leading to police having to use teargas and rubber bullets to regain control.

A female security officer was seriously hurt when fans attacked her.

Equipment was trashed and parts of the stadium set on fire when the Chiefs supporters went on the rampage.
