Three men believed to have been hired by Pirates were caught three days before the Orlando Pirates and Thanda Royal Zulu game allegedly trying to plant herbal concoctions on the field.

Orlando Pirates took on Thanda Royal Zulu in the Nedbank Cup competition on Saturday and won on penalties.

According to a Dailysun source, the three men approached security guards at Umhlathuze Sports Complex.

They tried to bribe the guards to allow them to enter the stadium.

"They offered the guards R400 but the guards refused the amount," the source said.

"They later agreed on a payment of R1000.

"But when they arrived on Thursday, they went into the stadium without giving the guards their money."

While they were busy planting the concoctions on the field, the guards called the cops, who arrested the men.



Thanda general manager Thabani Gumede confirmed the incident.

And Orlando Pirates spokesman Mickey Modisane confirmed to Daily Sun that the incident took place.

He said the men were not arrested but held for a short period of time.

"This happened due to miscommunication between our team, the security guards and Thanda Royal.

"Our club officials had gone to the stadium to collect change room keys when the incident occurred," Modisane said.

"I can confirm that they were never charged but held for a short period, interrogated and released."

Captain Thulani Zwane confirmed that a case of trespassing was opened by Richards Bay SAPS.

"No arrests have been made so far," Zwane said.
