AmaZulu’s trail into history books keeps on going following their DSTV Premiership 5-1 midweek rout of Cape Town City, with orders from a proud Benni McCarthy who says his boys deserve all the plaudits for their efforts.
The result sees the 43-year-old mentor’s side climb a step further towards more than meeting the mandate given last year by club President Sandile Zungu of finishing within the top 4 bracket at the end of the 2020/21 season.
Usuthu took their points tally to 47 points and remained second on the league standings – a point behind leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns who have 2 matches in hand.
McCarthy said: “Today we played a perfect game. Yeah, again we conceded a goal. I’m not too sure that Veli will be too happy with conceding. We gave a soft penalty away which we can avoid. With all that said we were excellent, our work ethic, the work rate, our desire and our hunger to achieve was just incredible.”
“Huge respect and a lot of love for my players, to go and do that against one of the best footballing teams in the country. We know City are a fabulous team, a good footballing team who score a lot of goals and make life difficult for many teams in the league.
“Today we made them look average, these boys of mine don’t know what they are achieving and slowly but surely accomplishing. They are on the brink of creating history. For the first time an AmaZulu team to go so many games unbeaten and they are getting stronger and stronger as each game goes on.
“I’m super proud of this team and can’t wait to see what we achieve with this team together. There’s still six games to go. I hope that we keep our focus, maintain being humble, just because we won today doesn’t mean we achieved anything. We still have six games to go from achieving what we want to, ” he concluded.Share
