This was basically suggested by Cape Town City head coach Benni McCarthy after their loss against Kaizer Chiefs earlier this month, along with experience at crucial times.
There is so much gold in having that experienced leader who can calm the team down and organise the squad. That sense of responsibility when the team is under the pump, echoes right through the spine of the team.
These leaders play a major role in the game management of the team too. This is exactly the void that is the kryptonite of the Citizens at the moment.
Cape Town City very often have their opposition on the ropes but fail to capitalise in many crunch time situations. Sometimes mental breathers are needed to recoup and reload at crucial times.
Are City short of leaders that can take their team to the next level?
