Cape Town City FC are looking for a new coach following Benni’s failure to lead the team. All he has been doing is criticising the players and match officials. Now the team’s boss is searching for a new coach to take over Benni McCarthy who took over Eric Tinker after joining SuperSport United FC.
Former Orlando Pirates coaches are in line to replace Eric Benni at Cape Town City FC. SuperSport United team is currently participating in the CAF Confederations Cup and doing well as they played a 2 all draw against TP Mazembe of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Their CAF campaign is one of the reasons they signed Cape Town City FC coach Eric Tinkler while the Cape Side were still expecting to have him for another season or two.
Ruud Krol who coached Orlando Pirates the time when they won double treble is one of the coaches who are linked with a move to Cape Town City FC after he failed to get the seat at SuperSport United as it was given to Eric Tinkler. Ruud is familiar with South African football and is not new to the country as he has been here before and his job application to the Cape Town side might be accepted considering that he has vast experience of coaching top quality sides in the African continent as he also coached in Tunisia and Algeria.
Muhsin Ertugral who resigned from Orlando Pirates last season after a heavy defeat to SuperSport United is one of the former coaches linked with a coaching job at Cape Town City FC. He is currently in Turkey and could return to South Africa if he is given the job at the Cape Town side. He has worked with John Comitis at Ajax Cape Town before and their relationship was reported to be very good and he has also a great relationship with almost the Cape Town City FC players as they were playing for the then Mpumalanga Black Aces before it was sold.
The return of Muhsin Ertugral to South Africa would make football more exciting as he still has a lot of things to show football fans in the country after they labelled him names as things are not going well at Orlando Pirates since he joined them before the start of the last season. Muhsin has short temper and that could be his disadvantage as most of established football players expect a coach to respect them than to shout at them like kids.
Roger De Sa is also one of the coaches linked with a job at Cape Town City FC. The much travelled coach is now the coach of Platinum Stars but has been eyed as the perfect man to coach Cape Town City FC. He also coached at Bidvest Wits, Ajax Cape Town FC and Orlando Pirates. Roger managed to lead Orlando Pirates to the 2013 CAF Champions League final where they lost to Al Ahly of Egypt. His CV is a good one except the time where he led Bidvest Wits FC to relegation to the NFD.
Benni McCarthy started well at the team but now has destroyed the confidence of players which is the last thing the team needed.
