Kaizer Chiefs target Benni McCarthy might be moving from Man United but there’s a new surprise destination on the cards.


Recent popular opinion dictated that Man United would dispense of head coach Erik Ten Hag. That, despite the Red Devils winning the FA Cup against Man City. However, in a fresh twist, indications are that the Dutchman will keep his job. What that means for attack coach Benni McCarthy is unclear, but Ten Hag did bring McCarthy over to Old Trafford. Are their futures necessarily linked and aligned?

Benni to the United States MLS?

According to Soccer-Laduma, Major League Soccer is an area of interest for McCarthy with stateside options already on the table for the 46-year-old.

“With McCarthy believed to be close to the exit door at United, the 46-year-old is understood to be weighing up his options with the MLS an avenue he is willing to explore. South Africa already has a growing contingent currently represented in the league from a players’ perspective with Njabulo Blom (St Louis City), Cassius Mailula (FC Toronto), Katlego Ntshabeleng (FC Dallas), Bongokuhle Hlongwane (Minnesota FC) and Olwethu Makhanya (Philadelphia Union). From a coach’s perspective, Bradley Carnell is hoisting the flag up high with St Louis City. McCarthy is understood to have caught the eye of one or two teams, though it remains to be seen what comes of the interest. The next few weeks are set to be interesting for the former Cape Town City mentor’s future and where he will next take his talents,” wrote the publication.

Nabi to Kaizer Chiefs is almost a done deal

Tunisian tactician Nasreddine Nabi still has cup semi-final duties as well as the final match of the Botola Pro 1 League on June 14th. Once his side has contested their semi-final clash against MAS Fes on 23 June, he’ll seal the deal with Amakhosi according to UnplayableZA on X. Circle that date, keep it in your phone or whatever is handiest. Meanwhile, Pitso Mosimane has given the club some sage advice on how they should be structuring their long-term goals.
