Cape Town - Cape Town City winger Surprise Ralani has praised his coach Benni McCarthy for believing in him and pushing him to be a better player.
The 31-year-old Ralani is shaping up to be one of City's key players this season and scored his first goal of the campaign in the 1-1 draw against defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns last week.
The Citizens have a blockbuster clash against Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday and Ralani, while happy with his performances, feels he can still improve.
Ralani said, according to IOL website: "I always want to do better and help the team gain even more out of games.
"Coach Benni (McCarthy) believes in me like he does in all his players and pushes me to my limit believing that even at this stage of my career that I can be one of the best out there.
"That means a lot for me. I'm very happy playing under him and very happy we understand each other as a player and coach.
"Even off the field he helps and listens where he can which to me is just great."
Amakhosi will come to Cape Town brimming with confidence having taken seven points out of a possible nine so far this season.
