Becker to pay Benni McCarthy a visit


Former Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy is not yet off the hook regarding his pending PSL charge despite leaving the country for Scotland.

McCarthy was ordered by PSL prosecutor Nande Becker to deny or acknowledge in writing his utterances made about match officials after the Telkom Knockout game against Kaizer Chiefs earlier this season.

The former Bafana Bafana striker has since left the country after parting ways with the Citizens a few weeks ago.

Both the club and McCarthy could still be charged for unsporting behaviour and bringing the League and its sponsors into disrepute if found guilty of the offence.

Becker, who has been kept busy with charges against players lately, has confirmed that he will still be attending to McCarthy's case despite him no longer being in the country.

Steve Komphela, Pitso Mosimane and Owen Da Gama are amongst the coaches set to have a date with the disciplinary committee following their own comments towards match officials.

Zlatko Krmpotic was also served a letter from the PSL but has also been sacked by Polokwane City.
