AmaZulu boss Benni McCarthy and SuperSport United counterpart Kaitano Tembo could be in hot water with the PSL after their lelike touchline war of words on Tuesday night.
While their teams played to an ill-tempered goalless draw in a rescheduled match at Kings Park, shots were fired during the match.
Video footage caught a kwaad Benni rounding on Tembo, who was off-camera.
The former Cape Town City boss could be heard saying: “I’ve lost every last bit of respect that I had for you. That’s why you [are] broke... Your career, Seven Stars, Ajax... You wanna get deep, then I will go deep... You call me a c***?”

Benni also took aim at the officials after Tercious Malepe was rightfully red-carded in the 75th minute for a foul on Mark Webber. SuperSport’s Luke Fleurs followed him off in the final minute for a second yellow.
Benni said afterwards: “It was a very physical game which I think went a little bit over physical because the referee couldn’t really control the game. He didn’t have the game under control.
“It was one-way traffic, everything was going in favour of the one team and I think frustrations grew a little bit in the game as the tackles went flying in.”
He added: “They didn’t even touch him and the ref falls for it.”
