Benni Set For City Job After Positive Talks!

Bafana Bafana legend, Benni McCarthy, looks set to secure his first head coaching role in football after successful talks with Cape Town City over the weekend.
 
 
As previously reported by the Siya crew, the 39-year-old (pictured above in September), who is South Africa’s highest goalscorer of all time, jetted into the Mother City over the weekend to discuss the position with the chairman, John Comitis, as he looks to get his foot on the coaching ladder.
 
McCarthy is currently completing his UEFA Pro Licence, the highest level available and has already worked as an assistant as Chris O’Loughlin’s number two at Sint-Truidense in Belgium.
 
The crew have been informed that talks between the former striker and the Cape club over the weekend did indeed go well, and that, if all continues to go well – he will be announced as Eric Tinkler’s replacement in the coming days.
 
Tinkler left City to join SuperSport United last week after they matched his buyout clause and his former club released a statement saying that they would be moving swiftly and appointing his successor within seven days.
 
Now, with Comitis looking to keep to his word, it appears that he has decided to take a chance on a young local coach as the club look to step out into the continental scene next season following their Absa Premiership efforts in 2016/17.
 
The crew sought to contact McCarthy’s representatives at On Target Football Consultants, however, they were unable for comment at this stage.
 
City had a stellar debut season following their creation last year and will be hoping to continue their progression under the new coach in the 2017/18 campaign.
