Benni McCarthy Finally Has The Monkey Off His Back

One of the signs that show a coach is destined for greatness is whether he had the ability to ride through the waves of pressure in their job, no matter the task at hand to rise up above all forces that could be detrimental to one's coaching career.

In that regard, the whole of last week had been making sounds of Benni McCarthy for his antics, for a fallout with Supersport United coach Kaitano Tembo, followed by a verbal attack from Malawi where he was going to play in the Champions Legaue.

Having been trailing 1-0 to Big Bullets after loosing at home in the first leg, the odds were against AmaZulu to progress to the next round after their second leg in the preliminary round against the same opponents.

To much of rather an unbelievable turn of events, Benni McCarthy led his Usuthu troops to an impressive 3-1 win in Malawi on Saturday, keeping their CAF Champions League ambitions very much alive and in motion.

McCarthy had gone for the combination of Bonginkosi Ntuli and Siphelele Mthembu upfront and it surely paid off as Ntuli Bagged a brace while Mthembu added their third goal, sealing a very impressive win in Malawi.

This is a sure sign of McCarthy's mental strength to shrugg of all the pressure and be able to do the job at hand, all who wish for his downfall should rather put a hold on it. This was his first win in all competitions this season, surely he will want to build on that going forward.

Usuthu will return to league action when they play Lamontville Golden Arrows in a mouthwatering KwaZulu-Natal Derby on Wednesday afternoon, hoping to pick up their first three points this season. Kick off is scheduled for 15h00.
