McCarthy: The referee can just put on a Kaizer Chiefs shirt

Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy spoke again about the referee in the last game against Kaizer Chiefs. Another furious criticism on the referee, suggesting that Kaizer Chiefs had better treatment in Telkom Knockout Last 16 clash at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.

In this game, City took the lead through a great goal from Kermit Erasmus, but Samir Nurkovic equalize. This sent the game on the penalties, where Chiefs won.

The home side has a lot of luck because his midfielder Mpho Makola sent off for a clear shove on the referee in the first half. After all that McCarthy still believes that the referee was against his team.

For McCarthy referee was disrespectful

For him the referee was terrible, basically, he could just put on a Kaizer Chiefs shirt. After the match, he also said that he heard that he is from Cape Town. The referee wants to prove a pint that there was no bias.


But if we look a little bit in the Soccer10 archive, this is a referee who gives TS Galaxy penalty in the final of the Nedbank Cup. Chiefs lose in this game.

Cape Town City head coach believes that Chiefs have been getting benefits from referees in recent games. Because of that, they have so good start of the season.

Even the fact that in this game referee give 12 yellow cards on both sides. He only sees the opponents. If we ask him, if you have that kind of power then the coaches can’t say anything.

In one situation Cape Town City should stay without one player after he hit the referee. But on this situation, Benni only said that Kaizer Chiefs should stay without two players at less.

But after the weekend, McCarthy was not the only coach who was unhappy with the judging. Golden Arrows tactician Steve Komphela commented on the referee in a game against Polokwane City. For him in this game the referee was disrespectful. He as a coach can’t allow that.

The main problem for him was the manner how he was communicating with him. No one can’t allow that. In the same way, as players, coaches need to respect the referees, they need to respect coaches.

In a short time, we will enjoy the next round of this competition. Make sure you put a bet on your team. After the game check coupon on Supabets and win some money.
