Benni pledged future to CT City, says Comitis

Cape Town City boss John Comitis says coach Benni McCarthy does not want to leave the club before winning the Premiership title.

McCarthy won the MTN8 in 2018/19 and also secured a top eight finish for the Citizens in the previous campaign.

As such, Bafana Bafana's all-time leading scorer is highly regarded as a top coaching prospect and is reportedly on the radar of a number of sides in South Africa's top flight.

Recently, Kaizer Chiefs were said to be interested in securing his services after enduring a poor campaign under coach Ernst Middendorp.

Nonetheless, Comitis has denied the 41-year-old wishes to leave as he still has ambitions of winning further silverware in the Mother City.

He told reporters: "Benni has told us he wants to win league and other trophies with us before thinking about expanding, possibly move to Bafana Bafana and abroad.

"Our focus is looking at improving the team consistency, avoiding any distractions.

"We have our own targets as a team and if we put more effort on that we won't have any issues.

"We just want to grow gradually as a team, we can't put pressure on the boys."

The experienced football supremo also congratulated Stellenbosch for their promotion to the Premiership as he believes it will aid football development in the Western Cape.
