Benni Commends Pirates For Making Things Edgy For Sundowns
Benni McCarthy Has Commended Orlando Pirates
Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy has commended Orlando Pirates for putting up an entertaining title race.
In the final days of the Absa Premiership, it was just Mamelodi Sundowns and Pirates left in the title race, that was fought up to the second last league encounter.
Sundowns were crowned Absa Premiership champions on Saturday, with McCarthy commending Pirates for putting up a fight to avoid the league title being decided five or six games before the end of the season.
“You also have to congratulate Pirates for making it a nice entertaining league towards the end stages, for pushing Sundowns all the way and not making it with five or six games to go then we already have a champion. So (congratulations) to Pirates, for turning their season around and Sundowns for being champions,” McCarthy told the media.
City will be finishing in the top eight of the league standings after an inconsistent run in the Absa Premiership this season.
However, the Mother City-based club were solid title contenders at some point this season and could look to regroup and once again challenge amongst the top teams in the Premier Soccer League.
