Benni carries weight of expectation at CT City

The hard work has begun for new Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy, with pre-season in full swing, as he takes on a job that, he says, fills him with a huge sense of responsibility.

The former South Africa international is the country's leading goal-scorer, and has spent the last two decades in Europe, but he was, for many, a surprise pick when he was unveiled by the club last month, taking over from the successful Eric Tinkler.

City have since acquired players with international experience to...

Experienced South African midfielder Teko Modise has become the latest high-profile signing for Cape Town City, the club confirmed on Wednesday.

The African Champions League winner Modise joins the team as a free agent, after opting not to renew his contract at Mamelodi Sundowns at the end of the 2016/17 season.

Modise is a stalwart of the domestic game, scoring 10 goals in 66 international appearances for South Africa, including at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

His tally of 31 goals for...

South African club Cape Town City have appointed Bafana Bafana all-time top scorer Benni McCarthy as their new head coach on a three-year contract.

McCarthy replaces another former South Africa international, Eric Tinkler, who left the Cape Town club to join SuperSport United earlier this month.

The 39-year-old recently worked as an assistant coach at Belgian Pro League side Sint Truiden and has completed his UEFA A coaching licence.

He has long been linked with a move to a South African club in...

Eric Tinkler walks out on Cape Town City, SuperSport next

Eric Tinkler has walked out on South African Premier Soccer League side Cape Town City and is set to be unveiled as the new coach of SuperSport United.

City confirmed that Tinkler had "broken his three-year contract" after just a season in charge, in which he led the side to a surprise third-place finish in the league as well as the Telkom Knockout trophy when they beat, ironically, SuperSport in the Final in December.

Although there has been no official word that Tinkler will join Matsatsantsa,...
