Benni McCarthy is a player who does not need an introduction in South African football, but we wonder how he will handle the pressure of continuing where Eric Tinkler left off and with whom will he work? These are the questions on everyone’s lips.
He has yet to announce his technical team and players and with his former teammates, Siyabonga Sangweni and Lucky Lekgwathi having hung up their boots, will he bring them on board at Cape Town City? Will he target Pirates’ former and current players just like Stuart Baxter did when he left Kaizer Chiefs and joined SuperSport United?
The decorated legend has a lot on his plate and some big shoes to fill in such a little space of time because last year Eric Tinkler managed to help the team to continental football, the CAF Confederations Cup.
With that being said, all eyes will be on the Champions League winner come next season.
