Ntseki discusses Benni proposition


Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki has discussed the possibility of roping in former Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy into his technical team.

McCarthy was recently sacked as head coach of City, following a run of just two victories in their last 18 games stretching back to last season.

The former Bafana striker has since returned to his family in Scotland, where he is set to take some time out before deciding on his next move.

With SAFA president Danny Jordaan having recently stated that discussions would be had with the 42-year-old, Ntseki has further expressed his desire to have the UEFA Pro Licenced manager join his proposed overseas-based scouting network.

“Ja, because when you look at our roll-out plan I presented to the president and technical committee, we need to have a scout overseas,” said Ntseki.

“Basically we are saying we must have two, who will be helping each other for senior and all the junior players, because if we are to have only one scout then it would be very difficult to be all over and give us a technical report on players we have overseas.

“So, it’s just unfortunate that coach Benni had to lose his job at Cape Town City, but that doesn’t mean anything bad about him – he’s a good coach and a legend of the game, and he’s qualified to do the job for us. When that time comes, we’ll be able to consider him.”
