Hunt: Benni deserved red card
Johannesburg - SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt pulled no punches as he claimed
it was the "shambolic" refereeing that cost his side in the 2-1 defeat
against Orlando Pirates on Tuesday night.
Matsatsantsa dominated for long periods of the crunch PSL tie at
Peter Mokaba Stadium and at one stage had 60 percent of the possession.
However, they failed to create enough opportunities and conceded
two goals against the run of play to eventually slump to defeat as Bucs
surged to the top of the standings.
Hunt was adamant in his post-match interview that the poor officiating was too much to overcome for his players.
The coach saw United's Edwin Gyimah sent off after lashing out at
Andile Jali in the second half, but was convinced Bucs striker Benni
McCarthy should've been shown red as well.
Hunt said after the clash: "Shambolic display tonight. I don't have to tell you from who.
"We get a red card and they don't? There was only one team in the
game and that was us. But we always had someone who was going to spoil
it for us.
"It's worse than in the (African) Champions League. The players
were dispondent. They were being kicked all over the place and Benni
should've been sent off.
"We totally dominated, but what can you do?"
