Benni McCarthy: Things Need To Change

Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy, feels hard done by some of the decisions made during matches and thinks that something must be done about the situation.

The Mother City-based club had yet another goal disallowed by a match referee during their Absa Premiership encounter against Polokwane City on Friday, this following a controversial incident in their clash against Orlando Pirates last week.

Speaking after the match, the City head coach admits that he might get into trouble for his comments, but feels that something needs to be done about the standard of refereeing in the Premier Soccer League.

“I think that moment called for 1998, Bafana vs Angola, when I just swung at that Angolan player, that’s how I felt today, I swear. Just last week I said, I know I am going to be in trouble, but who cares? We must make awareness, they have to change things. We boast that our league is the best in Africa and we are trying to get on par with the European clubs but we can’t sort our business out at home, we can’t get decent referees,” McCarthy told the media on Friday, September 22.

“I know I am young and it is going to get me into trouble but I would rather be in trouble but then the referee’s situation is getting sorted No, I am not defending or just lashing out, because I was on the winning side but if I had lost, I would have been madder than this.”

“But, this is me winning because I felt last week, against Pirates we threw one point away, we didn’t get a point because of bad refereeing and then today, almost exactly the same, so something has to be done,” the Bafana Bafana legend added.

Well complain Benni i hope Safa will deal with Psl referee's because they said referee's decision is final but today is worse because is final even to wrong things they refused to judge even to proper penalties and they don't give red cards to players who misbehave themselves on the field

I think Psl and safa are failing us as south Africans, I don't think they care at all, we pay our hard earned money to go to the stadium only for a referee to decide the outcome of the game, nonsense that has to come to an end
