Smith: All fine after Benni fight

Norman Smith confirms fight with Benni McCarthy

Posted: 30 January 2013 Time: 10:05 am

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 KickOff.com "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 KickOff.com.

“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.”

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!

Norman Smith has no hard feelings because he punched by the most successful SA footballer of all time. The most decorated footballer you can think of here in Mzansi. He will for ever cherish that moment, and even tell his kids when he's retired, “you see right here (pointing to his cheek bone), Benni laid his fist on me.”

People will come from all over taking pics of Norman's face as if he were an object in a museum.

Norman woke up today the happiest man alive

Kick-off magazine focuses on soccer not boxing, it is very much immature and irresponsible of Fakude to even ask us the stupid question, I know people like Treble Champ gives you the idea that many kick-off readers are stupid like him but hey Fakude there are many of us who are bright and gold

Mcarthy is always in scuffles,he was in a scuffle with Wits striker chapman,Roger de sa,tinkler, and now it's
smith. Yes soccer is a physical sport and little tussles are expected but the rate Mcarthy is goin at ....in terms of fights, is not acceptable.

This season Benni has zero goals and a red card that cost us the MTN8. Not a good season and such publicity is not helping either. Maybe this is the reason why he is yet to be offered a new contract - Khoza might be considering such things. Highly gifted footballer though his achievements speak volumes and his brilliant goals helped to land us our second successive treble
