It seems that Zulu FC coach Benni McCarthy is tired of poor performance from his players, which he described as a tradition of playing football and failing to score goals.
On Wednesday Sotheby’s again failed to collect full points in a 1-1 draw with SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Even in this hot game McCarthy’s side played well, made a lot of chances but failed to close them down. They were the first to see the goal with Siphelele “Shaka” Mthembu’s goal, which he scored in the first half.
In the 77th minute, Zulu Booysen of Zululand, fouled Thamsanqa Gabuza in the box, and the referee put him in the ashes. Matsatsantsa a Pitori striker Bradley Grobler did not slip, and he stuck it in the net.
He was scoring his 11th goal in the DStv Premiership, in 12 games. After the game with SuperSport, McCarthy, who sounded angry, said he was tired. He expressed hope that the party’s president, Sandile Zungu, would allow him to enter the market because the party was weak.
“I think it’s a common practice, to play well, to manage the game, to create chances but the players take it for granted that you have to score goals to win the game.
“You can’t play like we have managed every game since I came as a Zulu coach, in the end you have nothing to show for it. It’s annoying. Patience is running out. I think players should do better. They must smell the armpits. They take it easy to lose points this way, no one wants to point a finger at him, ”said McCarthy.
In five games, McCarthy has won one game. Three played out in a draw, losing one. They have not won since the beginning of the year.
“For Bloemfontein Celtic it was the same thing, Kaizer Chiefs didn’t get anything for the same thing, for Maritzburg it was the same thing, today. I don’t want it to be something that the Zulus are known for, that we play well but then lose points, we have nothing. We keep collecting each point, that will not help us. I think we should keep working hard. ”
He said it was good as the signing window had opened.
“With the window open, the president will see the need to strengthen the party. The team is good but there are still gaps. We will be able to enter the market and find (a player) who will be able to lead the team, win games. It is worrying for us coaches but it is a situation we are facing, ”said McCarthy.
When the coach arrived in Zululand he said he did not see him signing, he thought the team was strong enough. Clearly, you have changed your mind. Zungu told Isolezwe that he had opened his hands to McCarthy, and was willing to buy any player for him, no matter how expensive.
Tomorrow AmaZulu will visit Baroka, Peter Mokaba Stadium in a match that will start at 5pm.
