Downs Legend: Benni Did More Than Downs Trio

Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Phelelani Ntshangase believes it is unfair to question the decision to give coach Benni McCarthy a PSL Coach of the Season award.

The AmaZulu coach defeated DStv Premiership champions co-coaches Manqoba Mngqithi, Rulani Mokwena and Golden Arrows coach Mandla Ncikazi to win the award.

Ntshangase believes as much as he appreciates the work done by the Downs trio, in his view, the former Bafana Bafana striker did excellent work at Usuthu.

"Sundowns did very well, won lots of games in all competitions. They have quality coaches with huge experience. You must remember Coach Rulani was head at Orlando Pirates, Coach Steve Komphela has some huge experience too, so their minds with coach Manqoba Mngqithi, it's on another level," Ntshangase said, speaking to the Siya crew.  

"But I do believe coach Benni McCarthy... for him to lead AmaZulu FC to a CAF Champions League spot from relegation position, it's unbelievable. He deserves the coach of the season, he really worked hard." 

Ntshangase further says he doesn't understand the complaints. 

"I don't understand the complaints because Usuthu pushed Sundowns on the egde. He should get rewarded, there's no question about it and doesn't mean the other coaches are bad."
