Ajax Cape Town head coach, Muhsin Ertugral referred to Benni McCarthy as a baby who still has to learn to behave.

Cape Town City hosted the Urban Warriors at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday, January 20, in another emotional Cape derby.

The Citizens claimed the bragging rights once again over Ajax, securing a 1-0 win, however, not without some drama on the sidelines.

There seemed to have been some confusion during the encounter, as a miscommunication between the referee and the fourth allowed Kwanda Mngonyama on the field of play before Craig Martin could exit.

As a result, Ertugral was left fuming at the fact that City had 12 men on the field and subsequently called for a yellow card to be issued. 

However, this saw McCarthy retaliate, storming over to the Ajax technical area, conduct which eventually saw him sent off to the stands. 

Speaking on the matter after the game, Ertugral said, “ Benni also needs to learn a little bit. He was a great player but he needs to learn to behave on the side. There is a line, why did they draw a line there? He comes out of his line and comes to my line and asked what I am doing. I don’t know what he is doing, so I think he should ask himself.”

The Turkish-born head coach then went on the explain what happened after the game in the tunnel between the two head coaches, “For me, when I came out, he was waiting for me outside and I actually have a great respect for him, he is, (in) my opinion, a young boy that has achieved. But, after the game, I came out from the tunnel and he wanted to talk to me and I went to him and listened to him. He didn’t want to listen to what I had to say. In the end, somebody asked me where did I go wrong? Firstly, you have (a) couple of players on the field, more than us; I think the rules say very clearly.

"This is football, we are playing a derby and I have a certain right to do and to say. So, is he allowed because he played Champions League and me I am not allowed to speak? Is it that he has more rights than me?

"He needs to learn, he’s still a baby, next time I will bring a lollipop so he can play with it," he added.

Gavin Hunt saw how much he still needs to learn...1000 games (not 1 season) shows how serious his arrogance and diva tendencies are....This is mzansi baba, PSL soccer, media, players and fans will kill your coaching career dead
