Benni: All I Ask Is For A Fair Referee

Benni McCarthy: All I Ask Is For A Fair Referee

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 28, 2017 10:35 AM

Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy, is hopeful that the supporters in Cape Town can enjoy a good brand of football this weekend without it being negatively influenced by decisions made during the encounter.

McCarthy has previously expressed his disappointment in two of their Absa Premiership encounters, where he believes that referees made incorrect decisions which cost his team in some way.

An example of which was during the Mother City-based club’s league encounter against Orlando Pirates, where Lehlohonolo Majoro’s goal was disallowed, with many spectators questioning the legitimacy of the decision.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday’s Cape Town derby against Ajax Cape Town, McCarthy hopes that the encounter will be without any controversial refereeing decisions.

“For me, I think it is fair, people come out and pay their money to watch really good football just for games to be cancelled out because of bad refereeing, so all I ask for is that we have a fair referee, a good referee, one that is into the game because it is going to be a game with a lot of tension between the two sides,” McCarthy told the media yesterday, September 27.

“It is going to be a game that is going to be physical as well, so, I don’t want the referee to spoil a really good game of football. So, just for consistency that is all from my side then these guys know that they will be able to play to their best of their abilities if the ref is having a good game,” he added.

Just look at this referee-trying to impress Ian McLoyd for a referee of the year award by giving Katsande a yellow card...How parthetic!? Ian Macloyd-you must tell those captured referees that, it is not on how many red and yellow cards you give to big-players, that will make one to stand a better candidate to the honor-but, how many games you officiated without causing unnecessary tension and dubious decisions accountability.....actually, why the referees are allowed to wear these funny wrist bandages like they are going to face Floyd Mayweather? Is it to scare players or some fashion trends to make one feel stylish and cool....or is it some "Goopta Captured Referee" style?...MacLoyd, do you know?

Professor Ndaba, Ace Ngcobo & Sport Authorities why are you failing to secure a Designed Review System (DRS? - our referees are failing in making effective decisions on the field 1. fitness - in most instances the game is too fast for them, and they struggle to catch up with the game 2. What is the purpose of wearing headphones by Mzantsi referees on the field? 3. What is the function of the 4th official? Who is he officiating? In Cricket & Rugby - if a referee is uncertain about a decision - a game will be and a 4th official will make use of a designed review system (SLOMO) and provide a clear decision. I beg to differ with the notion that soccer is No..1 sport in Mzantsi, we are still far behind.

How is Bennie gonna do his job properly if all his hardwork is gonna go down the drain just bcz of poor officiating? Anyway Bennie isnt asking for a ref who's gonna favour him but simply a ref who's gonna do a proper job. As it stands the only ref I respect now is Mr Gomes, I believe even the players know him very well(including pitso).
