The coach of Usutu was named the most outstanding tactician of the season, but was once again conquered by Mamelodi Thorntons
After Benni McCarthy of AmaZulu was named the best coach of the Premier League this season, the reaction of South African fans was to argue whether the retired Bafana Bafana star deserves the award.
Critics pointed out that McCarthy should not have won the prize because he joined Usutu when the league was running in December. The Melody Sunset trio should be declared the winner. The Coach of the Season Award is usually given to the coach who won the PSL championship.
Other critics believe that the Sundowns trio was “snatched” for the award because they are 13 points higher than McCarthy’s AmaZulu, who won the Caf Champions League seat in second place-this is their history in the top The best position in the league. Others also think that the coach has enjoyed a lot of resources provided by Sandile Zungu, so his road to second place is smoother.
However, he has also received support because many people believe that the achievements of the South African in a short period of time deserve to be celebrated because he has only lost two games in Amazulu. McCarthy also joined Usutu when they were in a serious struggle, and then helped stabilize them and negotiated their upward actions dramatically.
