"He used some military way of attacking the player, something that is normally seen in the movies. No one knows where this fight started, but it looks like it comes from way back. Either on the day or over the week.

"But the assault and the pointing of firearm was reported to the police who arrested him, and the club suspended him. Such behaviour cannot be tolerated from a coach of his calibre."

The coach was arrested in Levubu near Thohoyandou, with police charging him with assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm (GBH) as well as pointing a firearm at someone.

Folz 'better' than Benni McCarthy

Outspoken AmaZulu Football Club president Sandile Zungu once again went against the grain.

Zungu implied that current coach Romain Folz - who led the club to its first cup final in 30 years - was a better coach than former boss Benni McCarthy.

The current Manchester United first-team coach guided Usuthu to a second-place finish in the league two seasons ago, the KwaZulu-Natal club's highest finish since the advent of the Premier Soccer League in 1996.

ETH heaps praise on McCarthy

Manchester United attacking coach Benni McCarthy is clearly doing a splendid job at the club.

The Bafana Bafana legend has played his part noticeably in the resurgence of the Red Devils resurgence from mediocrity, something which has garnered praise for him from all quarters.

The man who appointed him, Erik Ten Hag, openly stated the positive influence he has had on the club since coming into the fold last August.
