Benni: My Grandma Could Have Put Those Goals In
Benni McCarthy Has Expressed His Disappointment With His Side's Inability To Score Goals
Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy, has expressed his disappointment in his side’s inability to score goals.
The Citizens suffered their fourth consecutive defeat in the Absa Premiership after losing away to Baroka FC last night at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
Baroka managed to get two goals past City’s Shuaib Walters, despite the Citizens looking like they were in control of the encounter.
However, after countless missed chances for City, McCarthy revealed after the match that he thought even his grandmother would be able to put the balls in the back of the net.
“You can play beautiful football, you can dominate for 90 minutes, entertain the fans, but if you don’t put the ball in the back of the net you ain't going to win games and I am afraid that it’s the story of our season, you know,” McCarthy told SuperSport TV.
“We play nice football and I could count, 4, 5, at least five goalscoring chances, I think even my Grandma could have put it in.
“You put yourself on the back foot because you don’t want to score the goals and then they get two chances the whole game, two goals, and when you play football you play to win and when you don’t put the ball at the back of the net I am afraid no matter how good your team plays, how well organised you look, when you make two mistakes that cost you two goals and yeah…
“I don’t even know what I am going to say to the boys because you can’t be hard because they really went out there to put on a show but unfortunately if you don’t score goals, you don’t win football games.
"It becomes difficult and now it looks like it is a mountain to climb again for us but yeah, back to the drawing board, we continue to push forward,” he added.
