Benni Crying Out For New Players In Transfer Window?

Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy is eager to add more personnel to his books in the upcoming transfer window. 

The 40-year-old head coach was not short of praise for his side after their lukewarm 2017/18 campaign, commending his boys for maintaining a top four position for most of the season.

However, City have been lacking in certain positions, mainly in the attack, with the team short of an out and out goalscorer, following the departure of Lebogang Manyama, the 2016/17 top goalscorer.

“We lost Lebo, we lost (Lehlohonolo Majoro) Major, Victor (Obinna), when he took too long to get into it and by the time he was ready the club grew frustrated and parted ways and obviously Rusike came in and broke down,” McCarthy told the media.

“It has been tough physically on the guys, I have to give credit to the guys because from the first game of the season we have been top four, and now we are top six.”

The Head Coach then went on to say that he is hopeful that the chairman, John Comitis will give him the financial backing.

“If only I had a little bit more quality in the right department. Of course I have got the backing of the chairman, but I am not sure if he is going to give me the pot that I need, I would love to think so because I think that we don’t need to strengthen that much, it’s just a few areas here and there you know but I don’t want to plug holes I want to get the right guys and the right personnel because I know, if we get three or four players in, then I think we can be a good fit for next season,” he added.
