Benni McCarthy drops Kaitano Tembo BOMBSHELL!

AmaZulu head coach Benni McCarthy claimed that had last week’s heated encounter between him and SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo been away from the cameras, punches would have flown.

The pair were caught on camera having a verbal go at one another during a frustrating goalless stalemate in the DStv Premiership and Benni McCarthy has since revealed what exactly transpired!

Benni McCarthy was ready to pull out his boxing gloves!

“I said if he thinks he has any right to call me what he did, the next time I won’t be as kind,” Benni McCarthy told Metro FM’s Ultimate Sports Show.

“We are in a sport where young people are watching so we have to be examples, but that was not an example. If it was anywhere else away from the football pitch with cameras, it would have been a completely different outcome. He would have known what was coming because my fists were itching.

“People must understand, I am very calm. When Benni McCarthy reacts it’s always a big problem. I’m very respectful to all the coaches in the league. Unless you overstep your boundaries and start saying things to me or about my players, then, of course, you are asking for me to intervene and I will gladly oblige.”

What was said?

“The SuperSport bench was putting a lot of pressure on the referee. When they started doing this, we were told to sit down but it’s okay for the opposition to do it.” Benni McCarthy explained.

“Then I said to the opposition coach, you can’t tell us to sit down when you guys are doing the same thing and you are pressing the referee for every decision to go your way and it’s okay we must sit back. Now we are also going to press him.

“Then I was told to ‘shut up you c***’. For me, that was the ultimate disrespect. Someone calls me a c*** which I’m definitely not. If someone calls me that, now it’s not about football, you are attacking the individual.

“Of course I have every single right to stand up for myself and that’s exactly what I did. I am not going to be bullied by a coach or anyone else. People who know me, know that is the mother of all insults. I will never do wrong to anyone if you don’t do me wrong first.” Benni McCarthy concluded.

The Wallabies completed a comprehensive double over the Springboks on home soil on Saturday, but that has done nothing to sour relations between Quade Cooper and Siya Kolisi.

The Wallabies completed a comprehensive double over the Springboks on home soil on Saturday, but that has done nothing to sour relations between Quade Cooper and Siya Kolisi.

Australia won the first game narrowly

The first game saw the Springboks run the Wallabies close with only Cooper’s last minute heroics preventing Kolisi’s Springboks from claiming an unlikely victory.

That was not the only moment that proved to be heroic from Cooper, however, as he marked his returned to the Wallabies after four years with a polished kicking game, proving to be very effective for his country from the cone. That impact was further amplified by Springbok flyhalf Handre Pollard who left eight out  of10 possible points off the boot, which saw Kolisi’s side going down narrowly 25-28.

Kolisi didnt have a similar effect

Kolisi himself, unlike Cooper, didn’t have the most positive influence on the game for the Springboks, as he found himself penalised for a tip tackle early on during the proceedings. The 10 minutes he sat out subsequently coincided with points on the board for the Wallabies and an early ascendancy in the fixture.

Fortunes between both Kolisi and Cooper as well as the Springboks and Wallabies remained the same or got even worse for the South Africans as they were this time, outplayed by their Australian counterparts in the second test to claim a 30-17 victory over the visitors. 

True sportsmanship by both Cooper and Kolisi

But even with that result as it is, the sportsmanship between Cooper and Kolisi depicted the respect between both the Wallabies and Springboks camp. After the match Cooper and Kolisi exchanged jersey’s and later Cooper would take to his social media platforms to issue a message of respect for the World Cup winning captain. 

Coopers message

“Honour to share this moment with @siya_kolisi_the_bear a man that continues to be a leader, not only for rugby but for many all around the world by being an example of what it takes each day to stand tall in the face of adversity but also strive and stay true to who he is as a man in times of great success. Continue to lead brother.

 Love and respect.” Concluded Cooper.
