Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy was annoyed by Polokwane City’s approach during their league game last Friday.

City and Rise and Shine played to a goalless draw at the Cape Town Stadium.

After the game, McCarthy accused Polokwane of playing for a draw by parking the bus and not troubling his goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenburgh.

“City goalkeeper Peter (Leeuwenburgh) had one involvement in the whole game and that was in the first half‚” said McCarthy.

“And this is the team lying in sixth? Sies man!

“I’m not scared‚ but not everybody is young and thinks like me. They look and they say‚ ‘Ja‚ but Benni‚ he takes risks and he’ll get away with it because people like him and they appreciate the fact that he takes chances. We have shown that we respect no team and we go for it‚ we don’t change our way of playing. We believe we have got quality and pound for pound… we get knocked down and we get up.”
