Leopards boss unhappy with violence

21 October 2011, 15:44 Collins Okinyo

Nairobi - AFC Leopards chairman Alex Ole Magelo has called on fans to desist from violence after the FKL Cup semifinal clash was abandoned due to crowd trouble.

Gor Mahia were leading 1-0 when a group of Leopards fans got into a stone throwing episode that saw the match abandoned in the 85th minute.

The highly volatile match saw both sets of fans engaged in battle in the presence of Prime minister Raila Odinga forcing police to use tear gas to disperse them.

"I was not in the stadium when the violence started since I had rushed to the hospital to see my player Baraza who suffered a concussion. I am not happy at all with the news of the violence and I feel the fans should realize that football is a game to be enjoyed whether your lose or win," he told SuperSport.com.

"I am waiting for the match report to get the clear picture on what actually transpired at the Nyayo Stadium," he added.
