Benni: It’s Not Like Other Clubs Where They Are Under Pressure 24/7

Benni McCarthy Has Shared His Thoughts About His Time As A Head Coach So Far

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 14, 2018 04:00 PM

Benni McCarthy has spoken about how these days he is regarded as a tactician and no longer as a former player of the beautiful game.

The former Bafana Bafana international is now in his second stint as a professional head coach after he was given the chance at Cape Town City following head coach Eric Tinkler’s exit.

The 40-year-old, who is most fondly referred to as a legend of Bafana, is now also finally given the respect as being a mentor of a well-established club.

“I think it is about finding where you fit in most and I think I could have made the wrong decision, I came here, I came to a club who (is) ambitious and want to achieve things and they were willing to take a risk on someone who has never coached before and the chairman knows I know the game inside out but obviously, I have never been in this situation where I am now having to be in charge of players,” McCarthy told the media at the Woza Nazo Absa Premiership press conference.

“I am able to do my job and that is to coach my players and I don’t have the chairman or the club (making them feel like they) are 24/7 under pressure that they have to deliver and the club knows that Rome wasn't built in a day and here we build and try to grow,” he added.
