Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter has labelled the dispute with Mamelodi Sundowns prior to their MTN8 quarter-final defeat as an embarrassment.

Fans in attendance at the Loftus Stadium were left shocked, when the two Tshwane outfits came close to exchanging blows during the warm-up before the game.

"It's embarrassing and a shame in South African football that we can have such things," Baxter told reporters.

"I am not accusing anybody of anything. I am just saying that in a game where you see a parade of two teams trying to warm-up in the same area, that means the warm-up is compromised and at that point you can call the game off."

The former Kaizer Chiefs mentor also believes the referee should have sent off Ricardo Nascimento for a last-ditch challenge on Kingston Nkhatha.

"Thought that was a wrong decision by the referee when he did not give a red card to the Brazilian defender when the fourth official tells me he broke up a promising attack," Baxter added.

"He was the last defender when Nkhatha went through and that is a red card."
