Benni: It Is Not Worth Coaching!

Benni McCarthy was left frustrated following the final whistle in last night’s Absa Premiership encounter, with the head coach quite vocal about his unhappiness with the match referee, Eugene Mdluli.

Cape Town City played to a 1-1 draw with Highlands Park at the Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday evening, after going down to 10-men in the first half, with Kermit Erasmus receiving a red card.

Speaking to the media, McCarthy was left furious after the full-time whistle, adding that it was not the first game he was left frustrated with the match referee on the night.

“From the first minute, it is the same referee every single time, every time we get him. Against Wits, goes to a penalty out of nowhere then he apologises. Every time they want to apologise for what they do on the pitch and then you as a coach you must be cool and not worry about getting fined?” McCarthy told the media.

“This can’t go on any longer, it is either the league steps up and educates the referee properly or I think people like myself... I will rather take myself out of the equation because it is not worth coaching when you have to suffer every single time like that and you cant even talk or ask why they give certain decisions. It has become a joke now.”

The City head coach did not back, referencing the league game that was abandoned on April 14. He went on, “Bloemfontein Celtic, we will wait for the verdict and what’s going to happen there, a replay or no replay, get the points?

"The way the league is, I won’t hold my breath to say that something positive for us is going to come of it instead of going to play. For what it’s worth, we have to keep going, we had a sensational season.”
