Rusike: Coach Benni Has A Plan For Chiefs…

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker, Matthew Rusike, says that Cape Town City are not looking at the Amakhosi’s poor start to the season, but insists Benni McCarthy has a plan for them.

The 28-year-old has played a big role in the Citizens reaching the MTN8 final this season and bagged his first goal of the Absa Premiership campaign in their last league game as they drew 2-2 with Free State Stars.

Now, with McCarthy’s side coming up against his Rusike’s former employers, the Zimbabwean has spoken about ‘calculated arrogance’ as they look to make sure that Chiefs’ winless streak in the Absa Premiership doesn’t come to an end in Cape Town.

He told the Siya crew, “Obviously we are respectful of Chiefs as they are a big team and, regardless of the disappointing start they feel they have had, it’s never easy to play them. We are not wanting to get ahead of ourselves, and we want to try and remain focused for this game.

“As you know we are in the finals of MTN8 but need to remain grounded. We have respect but also calculated arrogance because it’s never easy for any team coming to Cape Town. Coach Benni has a plan like he always does, we just need to put it to practice.”

City host Chiefs at 15h00 on Saturday afternoon.
