Farook Kadodia says the Premier Soccer League (PSL) needs to bring someone to book for the tunnel fight between his side and Cape Town City camps.

This comes after video footages of a tunnel fight between the sides.

The first footage that was shared shows McCarthy pushing Maritzburg’s assistant coach in a scuffle that quickly died down after an intervention.

In another footage, both camps ran to the tunnel after another scuffle broke out.

Kadodia says he was disappointed by the behaviour of City in trying to prevent his side from getting an equaliser.

“I’m really disappointed,” Kadodia told the Daily Sun. “We were looking for an equaliser, we were not going to sit back and wait. The whole Cape Town City team attacked him (De Reuck) verbally. The whole Cape Town City left their bench to fight with Rushine and none of them were punished for going to the tunnel.”

Kadodia is confident that the PSL will act quickly and charge those who are responsible for the fight.
