Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy has been charged by the Premier Soccer League for comments directed at referee Phillip Tinyani.

This comes after the former Bafana Bafana striker labelled the referee as a ‘cow’ following his side’s 2-1 loss to Chippa United at Sisa Dukashe Stadium on October 22.
