What’s the story?

In what was a heated encounter on the pitch, the game between Usuthu and Matsatsantsa produced many talking points despite the 0-0 scoreline.

Both teams ended the tie with 10 men on the pitch, with Tercious Malepe and Luke Fleurs receiving their marching orders in the 74th and 90th minute respectively.


Referees & Tackles

After the game, coach Benni lamented some of the referee's decisions and also, questioned the quality of South African players. The former Cape Town City mentor mentioned that during the physical nature of the tie, referee Thando Ndzandzeka could not control the game.


Benni Vs Tembo

In adding more fuel to the fire, coach Benni and Kaitano Tembo were spotted having a row on the touchline in which salty language was used in the process.

The officials between the two camps thus continued to defuse the situation with McCarthy clearly unhappy with words that were uttered toward him. As a coach who always spoke his mind, coach Benni in turn bit back.

After the game, fans dissected the incident, with some even calling on the PSL to have a look at the coming together.
