The South African legend has to study the Citizens match in the Uefa Champions League

Manchester City take on Basel in the second leg of their last 16 encounter in England on Wednesday night.

Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy will be there learning from Pep Guardiola's methodology in the UCL. Before you get any fancy ideas on Benni learning directly from Pep instead of his idol Jose Mourinho, you need to realise that this is part of his coaching course.

“Our pro license group are doing a Champions League analysis and a club visit‚” McCarthy is reported in the Sowetan to have told the media.

“We have to watch and analyse Man City’s Champions League game on Wednesday. 

"Everyone on the course will be there and are put into groups and some ‘manage’ Man City and the others ‘Basle’ and you have to put yourself in the shoes of the coaches out in the dugout.

“The next day we do the club visit to look at the set up at their training facilities and their academy.”
