Bafana Bafana's Andile Jali was back in South Africa for international duty recently. While he was here, it seems he picked a side to support for the MTN8 final this weekend. Can you guess who he is going with?
It looks as though the addition of the legendary Benni McCarthy to the Cape Town City club has sparked Jali's interest as he sent the Citizens coach his well-wishes ahead of Saturday's MTN8 cup final in Durban.
City revealed this via their official Instagram account by posting a photo of Benni holding up the KV Oostende midfielder's jersey along with the caption: "Thank you Andile Jali for the well-wishes ahead of our #MTN8 final vs SSU this Saturday… Get behind the #Citizens #iamCityFC #WafaWafa"

With rumours swirling that Jali is set for a PSL return, perhaps Benni might be able to convince the star to settle in the Mother City and join his outfit.
The Citizens' campaign has been off to a fire start since the addition of the former FC Porto player at the helm, but if they are victorious in Saturday's final, it will definitely show the rest of the league that they are the team to look out for.
