Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates veteran striker Benni McCarthy has apologised to the club and fans for bringing the club into disrepute when he collected a red card in a match against SuperSport United in the second leg of the MTN8 semifinal at Soweto’s Orlando Stadium, according to a report in The New Age.

Said McCarthy via Twitter: “Thanks for all the
positive response from u guys, very much appreciated. But still
disappointed in my actions. Goodnight all. I’m in debt to our fans, will
make up for 2nyt disaster by making sure we are successful in all other
competitions. My sincere apology.”

killed the team. I’m really sorry to my team and our fans for getting
sent off and costing us the game.”
