Benni McCarthy shared his direct and honest approach with the players prior to the match against Maritzburg United on Friday.
The Cape Town City coach believes honesty is the best policy – with himself and the players. He said “I have to look in the mirror first because maybe I was bit naive to think that I could just change the team and the players would be able to switch on just like that.” He went on to admit that the wholesale changes he made on Tuesday against Wits may have been an error in judgement.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the coach feels some players may be lacking in ability. Shooting straight from the hip he said “Against Wits‚ some players showed that the top level is just too much for some of them.They might hate me for this but I don’t like to lie. When they are unbelievable‚ I tell them they are unbelievable so they just cannot expect me to praise‚ praise‚ praise. When they are rubbish‚ they also need to know‚”
It seems McCarthy will now be entrusting the same team that triumphed in the MTN8 against Supersport United on Saturday. Though he felt some players needed rest on Tuesday, the loss has now given him greater insight into his squad depth for upcoming fixtures.
