Cape Town City’s Benni McCarthy has explained what how much it means to him to have four wins over his boyhood head coach. 

City’s 1-0 win over Bidvest Wits this week became the fourth time that the Mother City-based club claimed victories over Head Coach Gavin Hunt’s side this season.

Speaking after the match, McCarthy explained why these wins are so important to him in his career as a head coach.

“Like I said, he is most admired by me because he was my first coach, he was the guy who really believed in me. He gave me, as a 17-year-old kid, he could have also said what every other coach said, too young, too skinny, your time will come. But, he didn’t, he threw me in the deep end and he forced the club to let me go to Europe and not sign for the so-called big clubs in South Africa,” McCarthy told the media after Wednesday evening’s Nedbank Cup clash.

“So, he believed in me and yes, of course, I have to respect and cherish that he gave me a life in football. So now, as a coach, he is somebody that I look up to, somebody whose footsteps I want to follow in, as much as I have got my own philosophy, but when I look at examples and people that inspires you, coach is one of them

“So for me, what motivates me, is to whip him every time I come up against him and that is how I repay him with my respect. So, I think if I were to lose, what respect am I going to get then? Nothing? So I try and go for it every time,” he added.
