After the failure of qualification for CAN 2021, South Africa sacked its coach Molefi Ntseki. While the post is therefore vacant, the former glory of Bafana Bafana, Benni McCarthy, has expressed his interest. The ex-Porto striker is currently having his second coaching experience with Amazulu club after starting with Cape Town City.
“ If the opportunity to lead the national team arises, that’s something I wouldn’t rule out. While I enjoy managing the players day in and day out, working on a daily basis and improving them, my national team is in trouble, so if there is a chance for me to take the reins and take the job, I will think about it , slipped the 43-year-old man at the microphone of the BBC . “ I would really think about it because nothing would make me more proud than to lead my country and to qualify for a World Cup. It would be one of the strongest moments of my coaching career, even if it’s a very short period of time, but it’s something I think about and would consider if the opportunity presented itself. . “
South Africa will face Ghana, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia in Group G of World Cup qualifying.
