Norman Smith confirms fight with Benni McCarthy

Posted: 30 January 2013 Time: 10:05

Golden Arrows striker Norman Smith says he bears no grudges against Orlando Pirates’ Benni McCarthy after they came to blows during a practice match at Rand Stadium yesterday.

The duo had to be separated by their teammates and officials after some punches were exchanged, with one of the players at the game telling "it was a nasty incident".

Smith confirms the scuffle with McCarthy, but insists all is fine now.

“It was in the line of duty. It happens in football, but it was nothing serious,” he tells

“We didn't speak afterwards but there are no hard feelings,” adds Smith, whose day got worse after he suffered a calf injury.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Who would have won the fight?

De Sa was quoted as saying (about McCarthy): “After the game, when I went to shake his hand, he told me to piss off. So I told him he’s got three brain cells and he probably gets paid by the kilo.”

Bennie have been training boxing recently and promised to protect his teammates, and in his own words;

"I am afraid someone is going to get hurt."

I saw Yeye is talkative these days and i wish Bennie can reshape him into a human picture.

The fattest player in the history of the PSL earning R450 000pm and is yet to score a goal this season.

Some teams are running at a loss.....

Fact, McCarthy has achieved what all the players at Chiefs will die still dreaming to achieve.

He can buy the team, Bobby (bail him out as well), Motaung senior (pay for his plastic surgery to remove dichubaba), motaung J (pay for his transformation to being a real man) and last but not least, Ms J (pay her 1000 x what she charges to her clients like Dladla).

That's Bennie for you!
