Cape Town - Cape Town City forward Siphelele Mthembu says
his coach Benni McCarthy has not put pressure on him to break his goal drought.
Mthembu has not hit the back of the net in three appearances
for the Citizens this season but his general play has been good.
The 32-year-old scored seven goals for City last campaign
before he limped off injured against Kaizer Chiefs in January and it has taken
time for him to get back to his previous form.
Mthembu is grateful though to be working under a coach who
was a former prolific striker himself and understands the dynamic of what part
injuries could play.
"As a striker, you always want to score goals for the
team, when injuries sometimes set you back, you become worried and put pressure
on yourself," said Mthembu, according to IOL.
"But when you have a coach who understands such
challengers you get motivation and you start to work hard again.
"The coach always pushes us to make scoring a habit in
training and he doesn't force us to try hard, he motivates us to become calm,
goals will come."
Mthembu is hoping to get help City get a positive result
when they take on SuperSport United away from home on Saturday.
