AmaZulu FC have been busy in the transfer market in their efforts to beef up coach Benni McCarthy’s squad.
But the media has been led to believe the hierarchy did come up short in completely satisfying all of the technical team’s demands, a fact that that McCarthy did hint at in his press conference last week.
At a glittering event to parade their new signings and unveiling the 2021/22 kit, AmaZulu chairman Sandile Zungu confirmed seven arrivals and three more followed before the weekend’s MTN8 quarterfinal elimination at the hands of Cape Town City at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
Indications, however, are that McCarthy only got five of his targets from an initial list of 10 players he requested.
While it appears a clear statement of intent from the club, Soccer Laduma has it on good authority that only five of those players were requested by McCarthy and his technical team.
The rest, insiders told the Soccer Laduma, were brought in by the club’s management. In a situation like this, McCarthy will have to be content and focus
on the job at hand, while making it clear behind the scenes that he is not totally content with the recruitment process.
What would have been ideal for McCarthy, sources have indicated, is the signing of three forwards in Facundo Juarez, the Argentine who plays for Club Atletico Mitre in the second tier of his native country, as well as Thabiso Kutumela and Mxolisi Macuphu.
