He was asked what frustrated him.

“Players not listening! When you have a job to do, it’s very simple” he said to the media.

“I don’t understand how many times you have to tell players to play simple. Football is a complicated game because silly players want to make it so complicated.

“Want to do things that they are not accustomed to doing.

“[Lionel] Messi; the best players in the world don’t even do that. But here in South Africa our level is there (low), but we want to go and do that.

“And that’s what we were doing and it was frustrating the life out of me. So, just a simple give-and-go, one-two, and then everyone complicates.

“And then a team like Galaxy, I said they were going to fight because they have a new coach. But if we had just played the simple game, the game we usually play, we score three or four.” he lamented

Usuthu now sits on 7th place on the league table. Benni McCarthy Believes That South African Football Players Are Mediocre & Poor!
