McCarthy won’t turn down Chiefs call
Former Orlando Pirates striker Benni McCarthy admits he would jump at the opportunity to coach Kaizer Chiefs.
McCarthy is edging closer to earning his coaching stripes after getting a UEFA A license and starting work on his UEFA Pro license.
The all-time Bafana Bafana top-scorer parted ways with Belgian side Sint Truiden earlier in the year, where he was assistant coach under Chris O’Loughlin.
“If I could get an opportunity and it was at Chiefs, why should I say no to one of the biggest teams in South Africa?,” McCarthy told Soccer Laduma.
“If the opportunity arises, of course I would take it. For example, José Mourinho said he was a Chelsea man and now he is with one of their biggest rivals.
“It’s a job at the end of the day and I’d have to try to get a job first of all. So if it’s Chiefs, Sundowns or Ajax, I would have to look at it. If it’s a project that excites me and I feel I could make a difference, I’d take it.
“If Pirates don’t come for me but Chiefs do, I can’t wait until I get old. So yeah, 100 per cent I would coach Kaizer Chiefs. They are a big club so why would anybody in the whole world say no to Chiefs?”
