Benni: We Are Here To Compete, We Are No Pushovers

Speaking after their 1-0 win over Bidvest Wits in the Nedbank Cup competition, McCarthy revealed that his side will be competing for everything on offer, adding that the Citizens are no pushovers.

“We have to rotate the squad but they know that whoever is playing, this is what I want, I want grafters, and I want hard work. We try and play beautiful football, we try and play entertaining football so I don’t think people can really complain about the smash and grab today because, against Sundowns, we gave people a show,” McCarthy told the media.

“We can compete, we are here to compete, we are no pushovers, we are not just going to lay down for anyone,” he added.
