Benni’s tough lesson
From one Soweto giant to another – Cape Town City will look to avenge their first loss of the season to a Sowetan club when they play against another Soweto side on Tuesday.
City travel to Orlando Pirates after their maiden league defeat to Kaizer Chiefs, hoping to bounce back immediately.
But coach Benni McCarthy must regret messing with the winning team after he changed his side that eventually went down to Amakhosi on Wednesday.
McCarthy showed his lack of coaching experience when he made six changes to the team that had knocked Bidvest Wits out of the
MTN8 at the weekend – and he paid dearly with three points.
But he will learn from these kinds of decisions because they often backfire
– as they did when they lost 2-0 to Chiefs.McCarthy will face the side he last played for before hanging up his boots in 2013.
He was overlooked for the Bucs’ coaching position when it was vacant, so he will have a few things to prove.
He has already won the hearts of many supporters after leading City to the final of the MTN8, where he will face Eric Tinkler’s SuperSport United.
