“I OWE A SINCERE APOLOGY TO ORLANDO PIRATES”: BENNI McCARTHY

Benni McCarthy rued what he calls a missed opportunity following Cape Town City’s 2-2 Absa Premiership draw with Orlando Pirates at a packed Athlone Stadium on Saturday.

City took a lead 18 seconds in to the game‚ but in the end had to scramble for a late equaliser as they delivered a serious blow to Pirates in their title bid.

But McCarthy says he is mostly disappointed that his side could not get the win that would have kept them in contention for second place in the League and CAF Champions League football next season.

Complex maths

“I am not too happy‚ because it was a missed opportunity‚” McCarthy said.

Craig Martin scored the late equaliser for Cape Town City as Orlando Pirates’ Absa Premiership title hopes were dealt a blow.

“At present mathematics is not on our side‚” said the Orlando Pirates coach, Milutin Sredojevic.

“For me it is all about building. My first season as a coach I finished fifth‚ so for my second season I am aiming much higher. Now third if we are lucky.

“Anything is possible in football.”

Bruised chances

McCarthy‚ who spent two seasons at Pirates at the end of his illustrious playing career‚ also went on to apologise to The Ghost for hurting their title chances.

“I have to sincerely apologise to Orlando Pirates that this was not going to be the day they become champions on my watch.

“Maybe one day the Pirates faithful can forgive me. But I am just doing my job‚” he said.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
