- SAFA president Danny Jordaan is reportedly keen to talk to Benni McCarthy regarding his future plans
- McCarthy was sacked by Cape Town City on Monday, but Jordaan emphasised that it doesn't spell the end of his coaching career
- Due to Jordaan's preference for using ex-players in various roles within SAFA, speculation has grown that McCarthy could be offered a position in the near future
Many football followers were stunned to learn of the surprise sacking of former Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy over the weekend.
Briefly.co.za provided some background on the development in an earlier report.
Even though the dust hasn't quite settled yet, McCarthy has been strongly linked with a new role.
KickOFF.com reported that SAFA president Danny Jordaan may be one of McCarthy's suitors as speculation grows regarding his next move.
Asked about the possibility of McCarthy taking up a role within the national team setup, Jordaan couldn't rule out the move.
However, he was adamant that McCarthy still needed to clarify his future plans and hinted at having a discussion with him in the near future.
Jordaan said, “I don’t know what his next steps or move is, we’ll have to wait and see. He’s a South African; he’s a coach in this country and that’s why I say it’s not the end of his career."
Briefly.co.za gathered that Jordaan's appetite for utilising the skills of former players, such as Neil Tovey, Andre Arendse and Quinton Fortune, has added fuel to the fire in terms of Benni's involvement.
Jordaan added, “There are too many ifs. Let us sort out the ifs and then I can give you an answer."
