City will play the home team at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday, October 14 when they lock horns with SuperSport in the final of the 2017 MTN8 competition.

Speaking to the media in an MTN8 press conference, McCarthy revealed that he is having troubling selecting his best 18-man squad for the day, as his entire team of players have been showing the hunger and passion during training.

“I’m already having headaches the last couple of days because we’ve got more than 18 so just to even select the 18-man squad for this final is a problem and some people are going to be disappointed which is rightfully so, but I am having difficulties choosing 18 players, let alone the 11 players deserve to go on that pitch and fight for their teammates, coaches and for their fans and for the club owners,” McCarthy said yesterday.

 “So I am having a bit of a torrid time selecting 18 players. I guess come Friday, hopefully, I make positive decisions. But, the players have stepped up and yeah it is good that they are fighting and keeping each other on their toes,” he added.

Just make sure you select that boy Nodada. I just like the sound of his surname just like that player from Barca, uMtiti. Goodluck to you and your boys Benny.
