No Clause In Loanees' Contracts As Benni Excited To Welcome Tinkler

Benni McCarthy revealed that he is excited to welcome Eric Tinkler back to the Cape Town Stadium, joking that it is just because the duo is former Bafana Bafana teammates.

Tinkler’s Maritzburg United side will travel to the Athlone Stadium in Cape Town this weekend, locking horns in an Absa Premiership clash.

The two sides, which are both coming off the backs of wins in their last respective fixtures, will have different agendas when they clash on Saturday.

City are looking to maintain their position in the top four of the league standings, while Maritzburg are fighting for their life at the foot end of the log.

Speaking to the media, McCarthy, who took over from Tinkler at City, with both head coaches having delivered a trophy in their stints at the club, has admitted that he is excited to welcome Tinkler back to the Mother City.

“Eric Tinkler (laughs) I can’t wait, Bafana Bafana boys man, it is a reunion,” McCarthy joked.

“Listen, he laid the groundwork for me, he planted the seed, he left everything nice, he left the team in third place so it is all good, Bafana mates,” he went on to say.

McCarthy then went on to confirm that Mpho Matsi, Allan Kateregga and Judas Moseamedi who are on loan at Maritzburg, will be eligible to play against their parent club this weekend.

“Yes they can play,” McCarthy said.
