Comitis, Benni not on same page


Cape Town City chairman John Comitis has explained why he doesn't agree with what his coach Benni McCarthy is asking for.

In Tuesday night's television post-match interview, McCarthy pleaded with his chairman to get him a new centre-back, as he feels this is a department his side is seriously lacking leadership in. 

This was after sloppy marking by the Citizens defence allowed Kaizer Chiefs to come back from a goal down to win 2-1 at Newlands Stadium.

McCarthy is looking for a player in the mould of Robyn Johannes, who left City at the end of the 2017/18 season to join Bidvest Wits.

"Like I said I'm make-shifting, I'm playing a left-back at centre-back and it should be clear now for my chairman that we need a centre-back," McCarthy said.

But Comitis doesn't agree with what McCarthy is saying, and believes there's nothing wrong with the squad they have assembled this season.

"We don't need anything," Comitis told "We have a top squad and had the players to secure that win."

The Citizens' next game will be against Golden Arrows at Cape Town Stadium on September 22.
