Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is hoping Benni McCarthy stays in the PSL after admitting his sadness at his sacking.

McCarthy lost his job at Cape Town City on Sunday following a run of two wins in 18 matches, a decision club boss John Comitis was at pains to make.

"I am very, very saddened by the Benni McCarthy sacking. I was his biggest fan, admiring how he taught his team to play the right way of playing football," he said on his official Twitter account.

"His team could build up play from the back like what big teams do in Europe (Man City, Bayern, Liverpool etc).

"A typical example of his work was the goal that Cape Town City scored against Kaizer Chiefs. A coaching clip for coaches and those who believe in good football.

"A big loss to SA football and I hope he remains in the PSL to transfer his philosophy to another team. Some players went to play for Cape Town City just to play for him.

"A very good coach and I salute you, Benni. You can walk away with pride especially after delivering a trophy in just a year and a half."
