AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy will come up against his former employers when his AmaZulu side take on Cape Town City in the MTN8 quarter-final on Sunday evening.
Teams: AmaZulu v Cape Town City
Date: 15 August 2021
Venue: Moses Mabhida Stadium
McCarthy will be eyeing his first silverware at the club after guiding the side to a second-place finish in the DStv Premiership, despite joining the team mid-way through the 2020/21 season.
McCarthy has already won this tournament as coach of the Citizens in 2018 and has also won this competition as a player for Orlando Pirates in 2011.
On the other hand, City would have been disappointed with their campaign last term after finishing in seventh place in the DStv Premiership, with coach Eric Tinkler re-appointed in the last few games of the 2020/21 season.
