Benni McCarthy has criticised Bafana Bafana international and former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Bongani Zungu for his comments on Orlando Pirates assistant coach Rulani Mokwena.
Zungu took to social media to express his feelings regarding the excellence of Mokwena in the aftermath of Pirates’ Absa Premiership victory against Polokwane City.
The Amiens midfielder expressed his adoration for Mokwena, but seemed to have stepped on a few toes, which triggered a response from Cape Town City coach McCarthy.
