My Toughest Opponent - Fabian McCarthy

Fabian McCarthy played against the who's who of PSL strikers during his spells at Bloemfontein Celtic, Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs, but three in particular stand out - and one caused him headaches game after game.

Shaun Bartlett and Bradley August make McCarthy's list of the best strikers he has played against, but Sibusiso Zuma stands out above the rest, with 'Rhee' getting the defender sent off twice in a row.

McCarthy describes just what made facing Zuma so tough, and the measures he went to to stop the former African Wanderers and Orlando Pirates man.
