Benni – Why I’m Not Interested In Chiefs & Pirates Now

Benni McCarthy has explained why he is currently not interested in offers from Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

The reigning DStv Premiership Coach of the Season has returned to AmaZulu for the club’s pre-season this week.

He dismissed rumours that he had gone awol, explaining that his late arrival in Kwa-Zulu Natal was fully agreed and approved by the club.

The Usuthu boss also spoke about rumours linking him with a move to Soweto giants, Chiefs and Pirates, but insisted he is currently not interested.

“I’ve always said my dream was to coach one of the big teams, one of the top teams and now I am at one of the top teams. So now I can’t see for me leaving what I’ve built here to go elsewhere,” he said on Marawa Sport Worldwide.

“It is tempting, it is exciting but I’m very happy at AmaZulu and I think we can achieve a lot more. 

“I wouldn’t want to jump ship and not play in the CAF Champions League and go on to coach a team that is not in the Champions League.

“So I’m very happy and I’ve not going anywhere. All the rumours and speculation that’s all it is, it’s only rumours and speculation.

“I didn’t have any meetings or discussions of the taking the job at Orlando Pirates – or Chiefs for that matter.”

McCarthy and AmaZulu will take part in next season’s CAF Champions League campaign after finishing second in the DStv Premiership.
