What Komphela Said To Benni After Lebusa Altercation

AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy has revealed what Steve Komphela said to him on the touchline after what looked like an altercation with Mamelodi Sundowns captain Mosa Lebusa. 

Usuthu held DStv Premiership leaders, Sundowns to a goalless draw in Durban on Wednesday, extending their unbeaten run under head coach McCarthy. It was a game that had high emotion at times, as both sides were determined to get a victory on the day.

After McCarthy and Lebusa came face-to-face on the touchline, the coach explained what happened. 

"It's just emotions in the game. There was no swearing. It was just an altercation because obviously Sundowns had an opportunity to almost steal the game from nothing because of the urgency they were trying. They threw the ball when our team was not ready and then they attacked us and they almost went to score. So then when the ball came out and then Majoro was trying to take a quick (throw-in) and the way the player behaved in an agressive manner towards Majoro and I just separated them. As I separated them, the player obviously thought I was leaning towards wanting to fight with him, so it was emotional. 

"There was no disrespect from the player towards me, or me towards the player. Obviously coach Steve was asking if the player was in any way disrespectful towards me. But it's emotions, it happens. I do that quite a lot. I let emotions sometimes get the better of me."
