Benni McCarthy lambastes Polokwane's defensive approach
Cape Town City head coach, Benni MCcarthy, has expressed disappointed over Polokwane City’s negative play, adding that his team comes out guns-blazing.
McCarthy’s team played to a goalless draw at home to Polokwane last Friday, and the Bafana Bafana legend has blamed the visitors’ game plan.
“City goalkeeper Peter (Leeuwenburgh) had one involvement in the whole game and that was in the first half‚” McCarthy said to Times Live.
“And this is the team lying in sixth? Sies man!
"My philosophy is guns blazing‚ I am a Hellraiser‚ I am going for it and I don’t respect no-one.
"I’m not scared of no-one. I tell my team to be brave. You get this chance one time [in your life]‚ when the football [career] is finished‚ you should have no regret.
“I’m not scared‚ but not everybody is young and thinks like me.
"They look and they say‚ ‘Ja‚ but Benni‚ he takes risks and he’ll get away with it because people like him and they appreciate the fact that he takes chances.
“We have shown that we respect no team and we go for it‚ we don’t change our way of playing.
"We believe we have got quality and pound for pound … we get knocked down and we get up.
“They were how many points behind us? Three points? Gee whiz‚ then you wonder the strength of the league. If the team that is sitting in sixth‚ and is three points behind the team in third‚ had no intention of playing football,” McCarthy concluded.
