Benni Issues A Warning To Mahlambi!

Phakamani Mahlambi might struggle to get any minutes on the field in the remaining matches for AmaZulu as coach Benni McCarthy is demanding nothing less than hard work from the Mamelodi Sundowns man.

The midfielder, who joined Usuthu in January on loan from the Brazilians, is at risk of leaving the KwaZulu-Natal outfit without having made any more appearances if he doesn’t pull up his socks.

So far, the 23-year-old former Al Ahly player made two substitute appearances and has been out of the picture in the last 10 matches in the league.

“Like I said, I don’t know how many times I must repeat myself, players need to work to play in the team. Players need to impress themselves and that’s simple as it is. If you don’t see yourself playing in the team it’s because you’re not working hard enough. There’s no two ways or three ways or any other thing other than the work. I don’t care about talent, because talent doesn’t not help if anyone doesn’t work hard, they don’t play with me simple,” said McCarthy, speaking to journalists.

“I have not given up on anyone, I never give up on anyone. You still have to fight your teammates for competition. No one in life gets an easy ride. I have seen far too many players… top class, world class players who don’t succeed because of that way, because people are always making excuses or people are always like they have the quality and they don’t need to work hard and expect that you can use them in your team. At the end of the day it’s a coach that gets fired because you go against your principle. My principle is simple, talent with no hard work don’t work. So, you need to have both attributes to play,” the coach warned.
