Benni’s Next Move Confirmed?

Benni McCarthy is expected back in the dugout after Siya sources informed the crew that his next move as head coach is all but confirmed.

The ex-Bafana Bafana international has been unattached since leaving Cape Town City a year ago and had returned to Scotland with his family while he plans for his future – he had an interview with Hearts, but the Scottish Premiership outfit went with another candidate from a list of three earlier this year.

He was also earmarked for the Ajax Cape Town post in January, but it's understood he turned it down. 

Now, McCarthy immediately emerged as the favourite to take over at AmaZulu after his name was thrown into the hat last month at the time new owner Sandile Zungu was contemplating making a coaching change.

Ayanda Dlamini officially stepped down as head coach of Usuthu on Monday, fueling speculation that McCarthy would succeed him, though three other names – Eric Tinkler, Shaun Bartlett and Owen da Gama – were also bandied about.

Siya sources close to the latest developments at the KZN club have now indicated to the Siya crew that McCarthy has all but won the race for the plum job.

He is expected to arrive in South Africa over the next week or so given Zungu had set a timeline for appointing a new coach – the Usuthu president wants to have the incoming technical team confirmed and paraded before their game against Golden Arrows on Wednesday.
