"I was ready to Klap Tembo, " Angry Benni McCarthy finally speaks out after Xenophobic Attacks talks

More information has now emerged on what caused the fight between two top DSTV Premiership coaches last week. The unfortunate situation was caught live on TV and many have moved to criticise the ugly scenes the two coaches exchanged. AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy says if last week’s brush with SuperSport United’s Kaitano Tembo was “away from a football match" then it would have been a completely different outcome. Speaking for the first time after the incident, he has said that his ‘fists were itching’ for SuperSport United’s Tembo.

The Usuthu tactician was captured live on television boiling with anger while ranting at the Matsatsantsa bench

AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy says if last week’s brush with SuperSport United’s Kaitano Tembo was “away from a football match" then it would have been a completely different outcome. The two coaches traded words during their 0-0 Premier Soccer League draw at Jonsson Kings Park Stadium.

But it was McCarthy whose touchline tirade was captured live on television as he called Tembo “broke” while promising to “get deep” with his Matsatsantsa counterpart.

McCarthy has given his side of the story about what transpired on that evening, explaining what made his volcanic temper erupt. McCarthy revealed that Tembo had called him with an ugly name he did not appreciate and this sent his anger up the roof.

“There are certain things I don’t think you should ever say even to your worst enemy. In football, yes, we are angry and that,” said McCarthy. But if someone calls you a certain thing, that I would never ever say about players or coaches regarding their families, what was said to me, all that I did was react, " he added.

Share your thoughts, what do you think should have happened at the bench and what punishment should be given to the two coaches.
