The Citizens have endured a tough start to the 2019/2020 season as the club find themselves in 13th positon after nine games in the Absa Premiership.

McCarthy's last match in charge ended in a 1-0 loss to Maritzburg United, which extended the side's winless run to nine matches across all competitions.

The full statement from City read:

Cape Town City Football Club has terminated the employment of coach Benni McCarthy, with immediate effect following a run of performance that saw the club win 2 in the last 18 games.

The club thanks Benni for his service over the last three seasons and wishes him well in his next endeavour. He now becomes an integral part of the club’s history and are proud of the successes we shared together.

The club has appointed assistant coach Vasili Manousakis as caretaker coach, as the club prepares to announce the next chapter and new Head Coach.

The future represents very exciting times for Cape Town City on and off the field, as we remain dedicated to our big plans and aspirations.
