South Africa: McCarthy questions Bafana’s hunger
The UEFA Champions League winner with Porto believes South African players are too contented with the local league(PSL) which limits their desire to succeed in Europe
“I think the players do not have the hunger that the majority of African players in Europe have,” McCarthy told Kickoff.com when asked why Bafana Bafana internationals like Thulani Serero, Bongani Khumalo and Kagisho Dikgacoi have struggled in Europe.
“I think there is luxury back home which makes it tough for us when we go to Europe. The other African players in Europe do not enjoy that luxury, which is why they have more hunger.”
