Former Bafana Players Going Into Coaching

World football is fraught with managers who have played professional football before, taking a slight change in direction and opting to be involved in the game off the bench. 

Today, Fan Park crew looks at former Bafana Bafana players who are pursuing a coaching career. 

MacBeth Sibaya

The former Bafana Bafana veteran hung up his boots in 2013 to pursue a coaching career. He attended an international coaching course in Germany last year, but is yet to be assigned to a team. 

Bradley Carnell

After a lengthy international career, the 38-year old now coaches the University of Johannesburg football team. Carnell also doubles up as a football analyst for SuperSport.

Benni McCarthy

Bafana Bafana's all-time top scorer made his coaching intentions known even before he quit terrorising defences. He enrolled for a UEFA B License in 2014, where he is currently hitting the books in England.

Quinton Fortune

Best remembered for his time at Manchester United, the Cape Town-born legend is now looking to test his fortunes in coaching as he is also working towards his UEFA B License. He was last linked with an assistant manager post at Welsh club Cardiff City in 2014, before his former teammate and, then Cardiff manager, Ole Gunner Solskjaer got the sack.

Shaun Bartlett

The only one on the list who has actually had a taste of professional coaching. His time on the bench came when he took over from Mark Harrison as Golden Arrows' caretaker just months before the team got relegated to the NFD. Bartlett, who completed his UEFA A License last year, is now tasked with bouncing the team back into the PSL.

Which of these budding professional coaches do you think will be the most successful?
