After Cape Town City terminated Benni McCarthy’s contract, SoccerClub scans Twitter for reaction to the news of his sacking.
The Citizens announced the departure of McCarthy at midnight on Monday, following a bad run of results with two wins from 18 games across all competitions.
In McCarthy’s last game in charge of the Citizens, his side suffered a 1-0 defeat by Maritzburg United at Cape Town Stadium, which extended their winless run to nine matches across all competitions.
The club have since appointed assistant coach Vasili Manousakis as caretaker coach, as they prepare to announce the next chapter and new head coach.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news:
It never came as a shock to me that benni mccarthy fired at @CapeTownCityFC it was long coming he was busy trying to emulate pitso mosimane with his comments about refrees and @KaizerChiefs. Football will humble you.

Besides Benni McCarthy, Bayern Munich has also showed Niko Kovac the door. Just when I thought Bayern had rediscovered its magic touch. Eintracht Frankfurt demolished Bayern 5-1 at the weekend. Which proved too much for powers-that-be at Bayern.

They just mid-night shuffle him. Cape Town City have parted ways with Benni McCarthy. A string of poor results for sure led to this. Letting go of him at night…sneaky!
