More Details On Benni McCarthy’s Role At Manchester United! Ex-forward and two time PSL coach, Benni McCarthy has been announced as a first-team coach for English Premier League side, Manchester United football club. His main responsibility will be in coaching attacking plays and positioning.

To make the news even more special for South Africa as a whole, the news was broke exclusively by sports broadcaster Robert Marawa on Saturday. McCarthy reportedly got the job after his long-time business manager submitted his CV in May, Ten Hag made contact in July for an interview and it was a done deal.

Benni shared his excitement and mission on his new job saying, “I am delighted to be here and I hope to make a real difference to United this season. There is no bigger stage than this.Β To be here is a privilege and the smallest chance that these players get should be grabbed with both hands. Listen, the mentality around the club is now completely different. The manager has addressed the issues and hopefully this season you will see a completely different United and a different hunger among the players. We hope that we can challenge ourselves to get in among the Champions League places and hopefully change the dynamics of City and Liverpool.”

Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag spoke on the appointment saying, “There was still one place in our coaching staff that I wanted to fill. We wanted someone with a different voice and Benni is that one. He has experience as a manager. He was a coach at the professional level and he is a former striker, a really successful striker as well. He will focus on the positioning and attacking. I’m not saying only the strikers, but also the integration from the full-backs and midfielders. Our way of play has to be dynamic.”
