Benni McCarthy On Cape Town City's January Transfer Window
Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy has spoken about what type of players he would like to bring to his side in the upcoming January transfer window.
With just weeks to go before the January transfer period, there have been several names being bandied about the City corridors, as McCarthy looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the second half of the 2017/18 domestic campaign and the upcoming CAF Confederations Cup competition.
Without giving away too much, the City head coach revealed that he would like to add more experience to his side as he looks to prepare his charges for their debut in the African continent.
City have already been linked with several names in the Premier Soccer League, with the likes of Brilliant Khuzwayo and Dove Wome being the talk of the town at this point.
“I think, now it is a good time to have a closer look and identify the guys who I think that can add value to this team and help make us stronger in our pursuit of a top eight finish,” McCarthy told the media after his side’s 1-0 win against Amazulu FC last Friday.
“A couple of quality (players) would not be bad and to get some good, experienced players (who) have played already for teams that have played in the CAF. It would help because we do have a lot of young boys, I am not saying that I want old players, just guys with some experience in Africa because you don’t want to go into the unknown and get the shock of your life.”
“It would be nice to have quality who is going to know what we are up against when we go to Africa,” he added.
