Benni McCarthy has sent out a firm message to Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns ahead of this season’s PSL.
McCarthy has made his intentions clear – AmaZulu have to beat the top side’s and that is his priority moving forward.
Usuthu made history last season when they finished second and in the process toppled both Chiefs and Pirates for the first time. McCarthy is targeting the PSL’s top sides.
“We want to get ourselves in among the top four and the tough games and tough challenges is what we have to face to be in the top,” said McCarthy.
Nothing less than qualifying for African continental football will do. For McCarthy, that means beating the best at all costs.
“We’ve got to beat the ones at the top,” stated McCarthy to SowetanLive.
He is confident his side will beat the Soweto giants and avenge their loss against the defending champions, Sundowns.
They certainly can, AmaZulu gave The Brazilians a fight, losing to a solitary and controversial penalty in the first half.
