Cape Town - Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy has been urged by club owner John Comitis to mind his manners while on the touchline.
McCarthy was caught on television camera during the 2-0 Cape derby win over Ajax seemingly swearing at Urban Warriors defender Isaac Nhlapo.
The 39-year-old former Bafana marksman subsequently apologised for his emotional outburst, but has now also been warned by his boss to keep his temper under control.
"He needs to be mindful that there are cameras and must select his words more carefully," Comitis told the SowetanLIVE website.
"We do not condone swearing. A game like that (the derby) can get heated but next time he should be more watchful."
The Cape side are looking this weekend to secure a second trophy in two years (they won the Telkom Knockout last season) when they take on SuperSport United in the MTN8 final in Durban on Saturday.
Having seen head coach Eric Tinkler departing for SuperSport, as well as captain Lebogang Manyama leaving for Turkey, Comitis admits there were concerns ahead of the campaign, but is confident his team are very much on track.
"The final will be more smash-and-grab. We got off to a great start and right now we are looking to stabilise the squad and have more consistency," he said.
"You can see that the team is maturing. At the beginning of the season we were worried about the stability because of the situation with Lebogang Manyama and Aubrey Ngoma who wanted to leave."
