AmaZulu Head Coach Benni McCarthy cut a frustrated a figure after his team’s 1-1 draw against SuperSport United on Wednesday.
McCarthy’s team had led for much of the game after Siphelele Mthembu’s goal, but Bradley Grobler equalised from the penalty spot.
McCarthy feels AmaZulu could have won the game, and says his team are not clinical enough in front of goal, and need to get more ruthless.
“I think it’s becoming the same old story. When you play well, you dominate games, you create the chances, clear-cut chances, and players just take for granted that you don’t need to score goals to win games,” McCarthy said after the game
“Of course, you can’t play the way we play and dominate every single game since walked through the door and became the AmaZulu manager, and we’ve got nothing to show for it.”
“That’s a bit frustrating. My patience is running a bit out now, so ja, I just feel that the players need to ask more of themselves. They need to ask more of themselves, because I think it’s too easy, it’s too easy.”
“And when you lose games like this, when you throw points away like this, then no one wants to take accountability for it, so ja, then your job just becomes very difficult because ja, Bloem Celtic it was the same situation; Kaizer Chiefs, we lost the game, we didn’t get nothing from it, the same situation; Maritzburg on Sunday, it was exactly the same situation, and now today.”
“I don’t want this to become the AmaZulu team that people know, we play fantastic, we dominate the game, we dominate possession, but then we get zero from it, one point, one point, one point, that ain’t gonna help us you know!”
