Former Cape Town City head coach Benni McCarthy has revealed that a move back to South Africa is still possible.
The 42-year-old coach has been without a job since he parted ways with the Mother City-based club in November last year, and has since been linked with several clubs.
The South African all-time record goalscorer is said to have had a discussion with Scottish club Hearts and GladAfrica Championship leaders Ajax Cape Town with regards to a coaching job.
However, the Bafana Bafana legend admitted that he’s patiently waiting on the right offer after his first senior managerial role turned sour with the Citizens.
“If it’s the right club, the right chairman and owner, someone I can work with then sure, I’ll be up for it,” McCarthy explained as quoted by BBC.
“But I’m not just going to take a job for the sake of taking it if it’s not the right move for both parties.
“The Ajax Cape Town job was probably mine if I wanted it. I had a few discussions with the club’s CEO Ari Efstathiou – we had great conversations.
“The project could have been good but the timing wasn’t right for me.”
Considering the fact that McCarthy is a former Ajax player and that the club is currently on form with a possible promotion to top-flight, provided they finish first this season, then Benni’s return would not be such a bad idea after all.
