Cape Town City confirmed that Benni McCarthy has been appointed as the new head coach of the Mother City-based club.
Eric Tinkler stepped down from the helm of the club last week Thursday, June 08, where he was later unveiled as the head coach of SuperSport United.
In a statement released by City on the day, the club confirmed that a new head coach will be appointed in the seven days following Tinkler’s departure.
Following the announcement, it was subsequently revealed on Soccer Laduma that Bafana Bafana legend, McCarthy’s name has been mentioned as one of the candidates who could take over from where Tinkler left off.
On Sunday, June 11, the Siya crew reported that McCarthy jetted into the Mother City over the weekend, where he met up with City’s chairman, Comitis, in what was believed to be an imminent conclusion of a deal.
It has since been confirmed by the club that the deal has officially been concluded and McCarthy has been appointed as the new head coach of the 2016 Telkom Knockout champions.
