Links: How Benni Helped Me Move Abroad

Gift Links who is currently in camp with the South African national under-23 side is grateful for the role that Head Coach Benni McCarthy played in career.

The 20-year-old former Cape Town City winger recently completed a move to Danish SuperLiga side Aarhus GF, before joining up with the rest of his teammates ahead of their third round, second leg encounter of the U23 Africa Cup Of Nations qualifiers against Zimbabwe.

“We need to score as many goals as possible and make sure that we go to Zimbabwe having secured a very good result,” Links said.

"That will see us in a very good position to push for qualification come the second leg in Bulawayo. That is what everybody in the team wants,” Links said about the encounter.

The player then went on to praise Head Coach McCarthy for his role in Links’ career, where he will now be able to add a European dynamic when called upon in the national team setup.

“Coach Benni has been really influential in helping me grow as a player and working with him played a massive part in that aspect of my life,” he said.

“That is one of the reasons why I joined Cape Town City (following his spell with Egyptian side, Pyramids FC). He is a great motivator and always told me that I had what it took to earn a move abroad. I just want to do good when I get there,” Links added.
