Benni: Pirates Were The Better Team

Benni: Pirates Were The Better Team

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 19, 2017 10:13 PM

Cape Town City head coach Benni McCarthy admitted Orlando Pirates were the better team on the day.

The Buccaneers returned to winning ways in the Absa Premiership as Thabo Qalinge's late strike secured a 1-0 win at the FNB Stadium.

"We did fairly well. We had complete control of the game but when you don't take your chances and you have the kind of referee on such a day then it's always difficult," McCarthy told SuperSport after the game.

"Best team at the end of the day won. They (Pirates) are in good voice and spirit. They got a lot of quick players upfront and they were clinical when it mattered the most.

"Unfortunately, as against Kaizer Chiefs, we played well again but in the most important areas, the guys seem start panicking, not putting the ball in the back of the net and if you don't the ball at the back of the net, you don't win games."

McCarthy is too young to complain about referee.first of all you are new in coaching industry with new ways and tactics of winning.you start with a wrong foot to blame ref instead of rectifying your own erros.be aware. talking or complaining about ref might repeat it self even on unnessesary matters.

You got to a good start because the foundation laid by Eric was still intact. Now it remains to be seen if you have the pedigree to step up and bring your own philosophy into the team to perform.You still have a long way to go as a coach.

Lets support the team guys and not start criticising the team so prematurely. What I like about the team is that it is now being coached hence different players and approach for different games. In the last seasons pirates was predictable with their approach to the game.

Lightning never strike twice at the same place, to be honest the citizens didn't disappoint at all as the gave their all- it's just it's not easy against a rejuvenated Pirates. To lose from a merger team doesn't mean u are weak, unfortunately one team has to win and the other one lose or else it's draw. Benni's one of our own African's Zidane-watch the space

What did i say, Benni is not yet a coach to praise. City downgraded since the departure of Tinkler so is for Benni to come up with his own formation. He will cry like Pitso very soon.

Everything is there fpr CTC, should they convert their chances, teams will be dead. Benni is proving to be the best tactician, with the perfomence they are showing, I give them my support for MTN8 final and I'm sure they will beat SSU. Vivat Benni McCarthy, Vivant optimum raeda.

Welldone Mich, I like the guts you have in giving my player Qalinge and opportunity and most guys there are doing well. I didnt understand your selection of your central defence in you I believe. I wish that in some games give Marshall Munetsi and Ayanda Nkosi a chance depending on their perfomane in training of course.

Benni is the best,you can see his team is playing good football, only luck lacking in the 18 area.
