The Bafana Bafana legend is frustrated that City has to play some home games out of the province, and has slammed Cape Town for their lack of support for soccer.
He pointed out that the city cares more about rugby than the most popular sport in the country. Do you agree with Benni McCarthy or is this problem in other parts of SA too?
Here's a wide variety of feedback from fans who agree and disagree with Benni.
CT City coach & @BafanaBafana all time top scorer Benni McCarthy has hit out at the city of Cape Town for closing down on football but prioritising rugby & other Cinderella sports! — Dominic Chimhavi (@DChimhavi) November 30, 2017
Benni McCarthy is really upset — You see, I (@LehareLaMinora) November 30, 2017
Benni McCarthy’s statement on Cape Town City’s venue change is and so true. Very disappointing how Cape Town teams are being forced to play away from home turf for non footballing events. — Rossé Marrai-Ricco (@RossellaMarrai) November 30, 2017
Benni Mccarthy, i salute and you Sir for speaking the truth — Kimo Mazibuko (@kimo_swazzie) November 30, 2017
"Benni McCarthy" wants the City of Cape Town to choose a PSL game which they can't fill the stadium over Rugby 7s game.
Nyaope is not good for a coach. this is a stupid letter. — ZacIssaSavage (@Isaac_Moselane) November 30, 2017
Benni McCarthy has a proper go at the City of Cape Town and says they're willing to bend over backwards for rugby but not for football!!! The man properly upset — Mninawa Ntloko (@ntlokom) November 30, 2017
I have been trying to get to understand what Benni McCarthy has been complaining about. Despite the stadium being built for the Fifa Football World Cup it was not built by SAFA or Fif. It was built with tax payers money and can be used by all tax paying citizens. — Dumile Mateza (@dumile_mateza) November 30, 2017
Stand up Benni McCarthy and fight for your lads, home advantage is always good for football — Jobe (@ndumisosithol) November 30, 2017
Benni mcCarthy's remarks are valid. People in cape town need to watch thier teams playing in capetown, I also think the city of cape town is being bias here. Football must not be taken for granted in capetown— Saaz Saida (@MaximumRSA) November 30, 2017
Orlando Pirates had to play a couple of games at the FNB because a non soccer event had booked the venue. i never saw anyone complain. "Benni McCarthy" o noba a tshwere ke letswae.
There's no base to his arguments. he must just go the eastern cape and play there — ZacIssaSavage (@Isaac_Moselane) November 30, 2017
What Benni McCarthy said about City of Cape Town's been happening to Mamelodi Sundowns in regards to Loftus Versfeld by City of Tshwane. At one point Sundowns had to move SuperSport United out of Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville, Pretoria because of rugby at Loftus — #HelpEndSlaveryInLibya (@Matome_Phillix) November 30, 2017
