Benni: We Made Chiefs Look Like World Beaters

Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy says that he's disappointed with the result against Kaizer Chiefs but will have to move on as they have another big encounter coming up.

City suffered a 4-1 loss to Amakhosi at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday, registering their biggest defeat for the 2018/19 campaign.

Speaking to the media, McCarthy analysed where he thought his side went wrong on the day, adding that City made the Soweto giants look like world beaters. 

“We looked like a team that (was) star struck, we made Chiefs look like they’re world beaters, up until they scored and then we started settling our nerves and then we started playing like we supposed to start the game and got our confidence back,” McCarthy said after the game.

“But the second half, we (went) to sleep again and then they hit us with a counter attack. (But) we take it; we move on and learn from the mistakes and what to do in the next situation when we do go a man down. 

“Chiefs took their opportunities and well done to them. A loss is a loss, we lost the game and now we have to focus on the next one,” he added.

City will travel away to the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday, September 19, where they will lock horns with Orlando Pirates in an Absa Premiership encounter.
