Benni: The Ref Might As Well Have Worn A Chiefs Shirt

Benni McCarthy did not hold back in admitting his frustrations towards the officiating during Saturday’s Telkom Knockout clash.

Cape Town City hosted Kaizer Chiefs at the Cape Town Stadium yesterday, where the Citizens made their exit from the last 16 of the Telkom Knockout competition after losing on penalties.

Speaking to the media after the game, McCarthy was clearly unhappy with some decisions by the match referee, saying that he might as well have worn a Chiefs’ jersey.

“The referee was terrible today, he might as well have put on a Kaizer Chiefs shirt and then I hear he is from Cape Town so he had to prove a point that he was not being biased? But I think he forced the issue a little bit, I think there could have been far more incidents and he just wanted to show that he is from Cape Town and that’s it,” McCarthy told the media.

“It was a one way traffic, Craig Martin was getting chopped left, right and centre and people are saying that we should have been a player less and the referee let us off the hook? But Chiefs should have been two players less. That Lebo tackle, that is sending him to hospital and it’s his season over, but he gives him a yellow card and warns our player?”

“What can you do? The minute you ask, you are told, ‘hush or I send you off’ – so they want to have those kinds of powers and coaches must say nothing? They were useless today, no wonder Chiefs won, it was a one-way traffic as it’s been in the last few games for Kaizer Chiefs. But for us, we also caused our own…” McCarthy added.
