Cape Town - Cape Town City manager Benni McCarthy has been slapped with a R50 000 fine by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) for branding referee Phillip Tinyani a 'cow' after last October's 2-1 loss to Chippa United.

During the former Bafana Bafana striker's post-match interview, the Citizens coach called the official a 'cow' due to a number of decisions in the game he seemingly didn't agree with. 

In a statement issued by the Absa Premiership, half of the fine has been suspended until the end of the season in case of a repeat offence although he must pay R25 000 with immediate affect. 

The league also issued penalties to National First Division sides, Royal Eagles and Mbombela United, for other infractions.

A statement read: "National First Division club Royal Eagles have been fined R40 000 (R20 000 of it suspended for a period of 12 months) for failing to submit their Security Operational Plan to the PSL five days before their match against University of Pretoria. 

"Mbombela United had three points deducted against them and fined R50 000 (R25 000 suspended for 24 months) for fielding an ineligible player (Mxolisi Mayongo). 

"The incident happened during their league match against Tshakumatsha Madzivhadila. Mayongo has been suspended for four matches."
