Benni ready to coach Pirates

Phakaaathi Reporter

The former Bafana striker is competing with the former Free State Stars coach for the job.

As reported by the Phakaaathi earlier, the former Pirates striker has been shortlisted as a potential target.

The former Bafana striker is competing with former Free State Stars coach Giovanni Solinas and Uganda coach Milutin Sredojevic for the vacant Pirates head coaching job.

“The chairman is a very busy man – no one from Pirates has spoken to me. I wouldn’t say no to Pirates. If they approached me, I would grab the job with both hands,” McCarthy told The Daily Sun.

“I feel like part of the furniture and the family there. It would be a huge blessing for me – and I’d be just like Zinedine Zidane and Pep Guardiola coaching the clubs they once played for.

“I want to show that soccer players are not dumb, and that we can study and achieve in the classroom as well. My next move is to start sending out my CV and putting my name out there. I am ready to be a manager and to coach.”
