“Benni McCarthy, thanks for showing leadership and bravery to support Daine Klate. He showed a lot determination and passion. He still has a lot of time on his side in this space. You have everything on your side to make it, and we are there to support you in everything you need.
"Benni McCarthy is a genuine person and will never leave you in the lurch. When I first saw you playing for Sports School and I said, he is the one! Rest is history.”

Time wasting is killing football says Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mngqithi

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngithi has a bee in his bonnet.

Mngqithi has called out teams that partake in intentionally wasting time during matches in an attempt to neutralise a superior opponent, Sports Brief reported. He called on the authorities to take a firmer stand on this negative tactic.

Mngqithi was speaking following a frustrating but dramatic DStv Premiership match against Chippa United at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Gqeberha. Peter Shalulile struck an injury-time winner in a 1-0 victory to send the defending champions to the top of the table for the first time this season.
