PSL Prosecutor To Decide On Benni's Misconduct
The Premier Soccer League Set To Study A Match Report And Make A Decision About Benni McCarthy's Misconduct
The Premier Soccer League will study the match report of the Cape Town derby, which took place at the weekend, with the association’s prosecutor set to make a final decision on the conduct of Cape Town City Head Coach Benni McCarthy.
There seemed to have been a miscommunication between the fourth official and the match referee during the second half of the Ikapa derby, after substitute, Kwanda Mngonyama entered the field of play before Craig Martin could make his exit, prompting an outcry for a yellow card from the opposing head coach, Muhsin Ertugral, which subsequently infuriated Head Coach McCarthy.
The 40-year-old Cape Town City head coach, fuelled by emotion, stormed over to the Ajax Cape Town technical area, exchanging words with some of the technical team members.
The official subsequently sent off McCarthy, with the association now set to make a decision on his misconduct.
McCarthy has previously been fined R50 000 by the PSL, with half of the sum suspended until the end of the season.
The Siya crew got in to contact with the PSL’s Head of Communications, Luxolo September, to inquire about whether McCarthy’s latest misconduct will have any effect on his prior indiscretions.
"Firstly, we will study the match report from the match commissioner. It will be forwarded to the prosecutor and he has a final say on what happens thereafter. I cannot comment further at this stage,” September told Soccer Laduma.
