CAPE TOWN- The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has asked Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy to explain himself in comments he made in November 25 2017  towards match officials.

The PSL has written a letter in terms of their NSL Handbook, and has given McCarthy five days to respond to their letter .

McCarthy is recorded to have said about the refereeing after his team match against Golden Arrows where they drew 2-2, he said, “You want my honest opinion? It’s bad refereeing, that’s what’s causing us to draw,” McCarthy told reporters after the game at the Princess Magogo Stadium.

“Why must I shy away when the referee can tell a player to f*#k off and you must say the referees are good? That’s what’s causing the problem.

“And as a coach and players you must be so frustrated standing on the side and seeing it happening week in and week out.

“Every game is the same thing and you as coaches must just keep quiet because if you don’t you are going to get fined [or] suspended.

“That’s what’s causing the draws because you don’t have the best officials.”
