Benni McCarthy has revealed that he has no intentions of making any drastic changes to the technical bench after being appointed as the new head coach of Cape Town City.
Former head coach, Eric Tinkler, guided the Mother City-based club to claim the 2016 Telkom Knockout trophy and end off at third place on the Absa Premiership league standings where they booked a place in the CAF Confederations Cup next season. This all during club’s inaugural campaign.
Tinkler recorded this feat with the likes of assistant coach, Ian Taylor and goalkeeper coach, Calvin Marlin, at his side on the technical bench.
Following the departure of Tinkler at the helm, McCarthy revealed that he does not want to make any drastic changes to the technical bench, but wants to add to the success that the team has already accomplished.
“Listen, in life, it is about continuity and here they have been successful you know. I don’t see me coming in and making drastic changes and erupt a successful team, so I come in, work with a team that is already been here and assembled because they had success. Now, it is just to add on, what I think that can give that extra little push to achieve more than what they did,” McCarthy told the media on Tuesday, June 13.
However, football is unpredictable and it remains to be seen which changes will take place to both the squad and the technical bench in the coming weeks.
