SLTV: Schillo: Benni Is Starting To Be Like Mourinho, Maybe He Can Win The League
Steven Pienaar thinks that Benni McCarthy is slowly becoming like a Jose Mourinho of South African football.
McCarthy, who was mentored by Mourinho during the duo's time at FC Porto, has already guided his Cape Town City side to a trophy during only his second year in charge at the helm.
Speaking to the media at yesterday’s Heineken event, Pienaar, who played alongside McCarthy for the South African national team, is hopeful that McCarthy’s side will continue on their good form and even thinks that he could go on to win the Absa Premiership this season.
“I think Benni is starting to (give) that Mourinho kind of feeling, he knows how to get his players to come back in the second half and come from goals behind,” Schillo told the media.
“He’s done it against Bloemfontein Celtic and (now) against Wits over the weekend. I am really proud of what he is doing with City, the way they play and hopefully, they’ll push on and one day win the league, maybe this season if Sundowns and Wits keep dropping points,” he added.
