Benni: The Referee Was Chiefs' Best Player

Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy was not impressed with the referee, saying he was Kaizer Chiefs' best player during their big loss.

The Citizens slumped to a 4-1 defeat to the Soweto giants in Cape Town on Saturday afternoon.

City finished the game with 10 men after Taariq Fielies was sent off when they were hosts 2-1 down, something which McCarthy did not appreciate.

“It was a massive setback for us when we were down to ten players. But what can I say we’ve done everything we possibly could,” McCarthy told SuperSport after the match.

“Tactically we were organised, we were a better team. We started slowly and allowed them into the game. I think after we got the jitters out of ourselves then we started playing the football we know we can.

“But when you’re playing against a Kaizer Chiefs team and their best player is the referee then you know you’ve got no chance.

“I know the league  is going to come for me but they are more than welcome. I don’t know how many times this is going to happen before we do something about it. How do you explain to the players what has gone wrong because I don’t think tactically we were that bad.

“Your team gets cautioned for everything and no matter what fouls and how they [Chiefs] kick your team they only get a talking to. I’m just a bit fed up not because we got hammered 4-1 it’s bad enough but ja I have to pick my boys up because we’ve got another tough one coming on Wednesday against Pirates,” he said.
