Benni: I Am Not Surprised Chiefs Sat Back

Benni McCarthy: I Am Not Surprised Kaizer Chiefs Sat Back

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 14, 2017 06:15 PM

Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy, is not surprised that Kaizer Chiefs sat back and defended, saying that it is understandable that Steve Komphela took that approach.

City suffered their first defeat of the 2017/18 campaign at the hands of Amakhosi last night, September 13, who were recognized for playing a more defensive style of play at the Cape Town Stadium.

Besides the two goals from Chiefs, the Mother City-based club suffered an early set-back in the game, after Teko Modise had to be replaced due to injury.

Speaking after the match, McCarthy revealed that Modise would have been his ideal man to penetrate the Amakhosi side who opted to ‘sit back’ in most parts of the game.

“Not surprised I guess, when you are under that much pressure and people are on your case, of course you need to take a different approach and they’ve clearly. They’ve watched us because they had a lot of free time to themselves while we were busy fighting it out so, I think they had enough time to see were things could go in their favour against us,” McCarthy told the media.

“Yeah, losing Teko – you lose the one player who can really unlock that defense of theirs even though they're sitting because, even in those little pockets, that’s where I wanted him to be playing to slot those little balls.”

“But, when you lose him, your whole dynamics change and them sitting back actually works in their favour because now, we have hard working players but we don’t have a real maestro that can find that pass that will kill their defense. So their defense intercepted everything, just our final pass let us down really, and Khune, massive difference in their side, when you have such a goalkeeper, then your life is a bit easier,” he added.

@Mtwesi. If you watched the game you would have noticed that the complexion of the game changed as soon as modise left the field. Chiefs were not in the game when modise was playing

Modise to penetrate chiefs but the ideal is a madala and his muscles were stretch by chiefs young and pace players. Benny must get it to his head that modise is playing with his heart, his legs are no more. He is a madala. Stop crying out about modise boy. Cape town city won't win the MTN 8 final . after 90 supersport united 2-0 cape town city .

@EagleEye A baby Bennie has reached the mtn final while the teacher is in his 18th year of a coaching career with no official cup kikikkki huuuuushame kick ass. Bennie is far much better than the zebbie coach.

So kompare's game plan is to park the putco bus at the back, meaning lots of draws less wins kikikkki Bennie is quite right neh.

If they sat back, then how did they score the two goals? Bennie, you are still a baby in the coaching job. You still have a lot to learn.

Am also not suprised by Bennie's words, all teams want to come out best when playing against Chiefs and when they lose the coaches start to creat all this lame excuses and don't wanna accept the defeat
