Amazulu Coach Benni McCarthy's List Of Angry Outbursts - OPINION

Benedict Saul "Benni" McCarthy is a South African coach and former footballer who was appointed Head coach of the Durban based PSL team, AmaZulu FC on 14 December 2020.

Benni is the South Africa national team's all-time top scorer with 31 goals. He was solely responsible for ensuring that Portugal's Porto FC, won the 2004 UEFA Champions League.

Surely he had a sparkling career as a footballer, but through his public outbursts, a football coach without good judgement in public is like a golden ring in a pig's snout. Check out the list of his angry outbursts.

1. Benni McCarthy's stinging words on Kaitano Tembo.

Benni's AmaZulu head coach fired touchline tirade aimed at Kaitano Tembo in a 0-0 draw against Supersport United on Tuesday.

After exchanging words with the opponent coach, Benni could be head saying, "You have lost every bit of respect l had for you. That is why you're always broke," McCarthy shouted.

2. McCarthy loses cool with referee Siyabylela Qunta - 2021

While they were in good form, AmaZulu suffered a frustrating 1-0 to Orlando Pirates in May, as usual Benni didn't hide his displeasure towards referee Qunta.

" So losing is part of the football, l'm not bitter. I can take losing but when you lose in that manner, not against your opponent but the man in the middle, what is this, a joke?

" lt is the first time l have seen this referee, how can the league even consider (him for) a game of this magnitude the team that's want to finish second is behind you."

3. McCarthy tells Big Bulles player to "shut up" - 2021

Following Amazulu's recent shock 1-0 defeat to Nyasa Big Bullets in their historic first ever CAF Champuons League game, McCarthy could be heard telling an opposition player to "shut up" on the sidelines.

After the game he didn't hide his frustration with his own team.

"lt was a horror show for me. Were nowhere close to our best.

" You look at the opposition, they did nothing in the game.

"Now we have to go to the jungle (for the away leg). We have to go to a difficult place looking for a win away from home," He said.

4. McCarthy blusts City Of Cape Town - 2017

In December 2017, Mccarthy's former club were forced to play a home fixture against Maritzburg United in KwaZulu-Natal after there were no available venues in Cape Town.

McCarthy didn't beat about the Bush but openly criticised City of Cape Town officials

"The Cape Town Stadium is unavailable due to the setting up of Rugby Sevens, but we have become accustomed to being removed from Cape Town Stadium for events far less significant. Football has been sold lies in Cape Town," He said.

5. McCarthy has a go at Roger de SA - 2011

Tembo is not the first coach rha McCarthy has called broke. He previously engaged in a heated scuffle with former Wits coach Roger de SA as an Orlando Pirates player during the 2011 Telkom Knockout final in Durban and is reported to have said:

"Listen here, what have you achieved in your career? Who are you? I will pay your salary out of my own pocket, You are nothing.
