Newly-appointed Richards Bay Technical Adviser Vasili Manousakis has spoken about how Benni McCarthy and Moeneeb Josephs pushed him to step up and take a leadership role.

Manousakis was unveiled by Richards Bay on Thursday, where will work alongside Head Coach Pitso Dladla as they Natal Rich Boyz make their debut in the DStv Premiership.

He had previously been McCarthy’s assistant at AmaZulu and at Cape Town City.

Manousakis was interviewed in the latest edition of iDiski Times, and Rob Delport asked him if he had considered stepping out of the assistant role he had occupied for the past few seasons.

“The subject has come up before because it’s been raised by Benni and Moeneeb,” Manousakis told iDiski Times.

“These two guys are always full of praise and support.

“I often fight with them because I don’t like to hear it, but I respect their opinions because they played for some of the best coaches in the world.

“So I don’t actively think about it. I don’t chase the opportunity either because I believe it’s all in God’s time.”

Richards Bay also unveiled ten new players for the upcoming season.
