Sad| Here’s What Really Happened on Willard Katsande’s Road Rage Attack


It's very sad that there are people who take football too personally, that they even carry anger outside the stadium. Especially in South Africa, there have been so many reported cases of footballers being attacked out of hate by opposition fans. There are reports that Willard Katsande was violently attacked in a highway anger and frustration event. He may have been badly hurt.


Willard Katsande, a veteran Kaizer Chiefs hard-tacking midfielder, was apparently attacked by an unidentified person in a road rage incident in Roodepoort on the West Rand of Johannesburg on Saturday evening.


While returning to his hometown following his first-team debut with Sekhukhune United, which happened to be against Chippa United on Saturday, Katsande was assaulted in Roodepoort. The Kaizer Chiefs, who are widely recognized as being excellent on the pitch, just freed him ahead of the new DStv Premiership season beginning this month.


Quickly after being assaulted and having his belongings damaged, the 35-year-old reported the issue to the Honeydew Police Department. As per the City Press, the incident was supposedly caused by a guy in a white Ford EcoSport who was shown the "middle finger" while cruising on Hendrick Potgieter and Peters roadways. The declaration made by Katsande to the authorities provided light into the incident.


“I was walking to the car when an angry white man jumped out and punched me in the head.He also damaged my car with his vandalism by breaking my right glass and right side reflector.He kicked my car on the side”. Katsande said in a police statement.

"R50,000 worth of damage" says the police report. The estimates are that Katsande's car sustained roughly R50,000 in repairs. Despite the fact that the suspect quickly ran away, the authorities are starting their inspections.

Katsande got to play previously for Sekhukhune in a 2-0 win against Maritzburg United, coming in to play early in the second half. He's spent the last decade with Kaizer Chiefs, but is now with Sekhukhune.
