McCarthy has no idea why his players are under-performing

Coach Benni McCarthy has a great team, but still, he has no idea why his players are under-performing. It looks like they don’t have any motivation for playing. Could he rally his troops to produce a good performance against Orlando Pirates on Saturday? For Citizens playing against one big club like Orlando Pirates should be good motivation.

Through six games they have been shaky. Only one win against Stellenbosch FC, while they have four draws and one loss at home. They had a chance to write more victories, but they didn’t manage to hold the lead against Baroka FC, Chiefs, Arrows. All this performance is the reason why they are on the 11th place on the PSL log and results with seven points from a possible 18.

What did players do in the previous games?

Against Arrows, they got a clumsy penalty which cost them a victory. But they don’t have only bad players. Kermit is one of the few City players which shine this season.

Thabo Nodada is one of their good players in this season who came back after the injury. In their last game, he scored two of three goals. Opponents scored nine goals, for every goal main problem was a lack of concentration.


The return of Fielies couldn’t have come in a better moment. Coach McCarthy needs to have all their players, only like that he could change his team if he sees that someone isn’t playing on the right level.

They have a good team, but it still is looking like this team is in the shadow of the team that performed so well in the last season. So many times they have a win in their hands, but always they trow their points.

Maybe they will not be in the run for the title, but still, they need to fight for a better position. Right now they can’t be satisfied with their performance. If they want to win, they need to change some things in their performance. Only like that, they can dream about one great result.

We will follow this situation. After the match, we will see did they manage to make good changes in the team. Soccer-10 will bring you all that information.
