Club insider confirms Benni McCarthy/Orlando Pirates talks

Club insider confirms Benni McCarthy/Orlando Pirates talks

Late last week it was reported by The South African News, that Chiefs do indeed have some form of interest in McCarthy at least, and have even gone as far as sounding him out.


It is believed that there have just been preliminary and no formal discussions with McCarthy’s camp with regards to him potentially taking over at Amakhosi next season.


What may have sparked this rumours even further, is the fact that the former Cape Town City coach has made no secret of his support for Chiefs in the past, and is a huge admirer of the brand, with the brand thought to have mutual feelings towards the mentor too.

Despite that admiration between Chiefs and McCarthy, the only Soweto giant he actually has strong links with, is Pirates. When the Bafana Bafana record goal scorer returned to play on South African shores, it was Pirates who ended up signing him, despite him admitting that he wanted to join boyhood club, Chiefs. The Uefa Champions League winning striker enjoyed a great deal of success with the Buccaneers, which led to him winning the treble with the club.
