South Africa's legendary striker Benni McCarthy experienced his first ever game as coach in Cape Town City's MTN8 quarterfinal

City beat Polokwane 1-0 to book a place in the semi-finals of the knockout competition against PSL champions Bidvest Wits.

Have a look at McCarthy's excitement in a photo and video on his first game in charge. For Cape Town's sake we hope he's going to get much more hugs from the stadium this season.

That would see City keep up their dominance over local rivals Ajax Cape Town, who's former player Mark Mayambela has extra time to spend on the bench in the Eastern Cape. Is the beach warmer near Chippa United, Mark?

We also threw in a bonus Tweet of former SA minister of sport Fikile Mbalula since Orlando Pirates fans had no MTN8 game to follow.
