- Benni McCarthy has spoken out against his side's recent loss
- He says that Kaizer Chiefs don't deserve their win
- He admitted that the Glamour Boys outplayed his team in the second half
Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy believes Kaizer Chiefs did not deserve their win. He claims that they did not earn the three points.
McCarthy admitted that the Glamour Boys dominated the second half, but he did not feel that they deserved to walk away as winners. He believes that his team did well in the first half and outplayed Chiefs.
"There was one team on the pitch. No disrespect to Chiefs."
The coach says he was satisfied by the first half and warned his boys not to get too confident. He credits the second half to the Kaizer Chiefs manager. He acknowledged that Middendorp successfully changed their strategy.
He criticised his team for not being adventurous and not trying hard enough to get the ball.
"When you are sloppy and naive the way we were second half, you're going to get punished."
McCarthy went on to say that his team fell on their own swords and were not intelligent enough to challenge the new Chiefs' strategy.
"Credit to Chiefs. They got to score two goals and take three points - undeservedly - but that's football."
The passionate coach asked for more support from the head of the Cape Town football team, John Comitis. He feels that the squad needs a new centre-back.
"Against the bigger teams you get punished and that's if you had an experienced centre-back, someone who is calm and who can tell them to hold their heads, then you know we would have been okay in this tie."
