Cape Town - Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy
believes the club are capable of claiming R15 million in prize money
this season by winning the Nedbank Cup.
City have already won the MTN8 trophy under McCarthy's guidance and
could complete a brace if they are able to secure the Nedbank.
The Citizens are into the quarter-finals of the competition having
clinically dispatched Highlands Park 3-0 to advance to the next round.
If the club were to go all the way in the tournament, they'd earn R7
million which could be added to the R8 million they won in the MTN8.
He told reporters: "There's a cup, it's two more games and then you
find yourself in the final, so the short term about it, we suffered the
disappointment of last week's loss, but now, you win here and then
you've got two more game.
"And then you can get a chance of lifting another cup and putting R7
million in your pocket, so that is R15 million for the year that the
players have put in the pocket of the club.
"So that is something remarkable, I don't know any other coach who
started his career like this. Even, if you have the opportunity at the
big three or four, none of them. It is remarkable that with the players
that I have, we can achieve these goals."
