Benni to emulate 'Downs, Chiefs and Buccaneers style

Cape Town - New Cape Town City FC head coach Benni McCarthy wants to play a brand of possession-based attacking football like Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.

McCarthy, who enjoyed a stellar playing career in Europe and back at home for the Buccaneers, believes that the club's style of counter-attacking football, honed under previous coach Eric Tinkler, can be added to.

"I want us to be dominating games‚ having ball possession and tiring the opponent," the former Bafana Bafana international told reporters at his unveiling on Tuesday in the Mother City, 

"The club last season sucked in opponents and caught them with counters‚ that is already a missile in our armoury.

"I want to go toe-to-toe with Chiefs‚ Sundowns and Pirates‚ teams that are really comfortable on the ball. But sometimes we will have to win ugly too."

McCarthy will begin work on June 23‚ seven days before his squad returns for pre-season training.
