Is McCarthy needed at Amazulu?
Amazulu FC have embarked on a ambitious project since the new owners took over ahead of the new campaign. Businessman Sandile Zungu acquired 100% of the KZN based side and has made it clear that he wants to turn the KZN based side into a force to be reckon with.
Zungu and the new management have signed a host of new players including former Orlando Pirates stars Augustine Mulenga, Xola Mlambo and Luvuyo Memela as they look to dominate South African football.
Now with a number of big name players in their arsenal, a experienced mentor who knows who to deal with big stars is needed. The current coach Ayanda Dlamini has not done anything wrong but his inexperience as a coach may work against him. The former Amazulu striker retired from the beautiful game just a few years ago. Dlamini is yet to prove himself as a manager at PSL level and can learn a lot from someone like former Bafana Bafana international striker Benni McCarthy.
The former Cape Town City coach has been linked to Usuthu with the new owners said to be big admirers of his coaching style. McCarthy has already won a cup competition as a coach and has dealt with big personalities throughout his football career. Amazulu can benefit from having someone like him in charge of their first team if they are to finish in the top four in the league.
