New AmaZulu head coach Benni McCarthy says he is raring to go in his new role, and has set lofty ambitions for himself and the team.
McCarthy was unveiled by AmaZulu chairman Sandile Zungu on Monday, and the former Bafana Bafana striker says he sees so much potential in the club.
This is the second head coach role for the former Cape Town City coach, who left City 13 months ago.
“As to why I joined the team – I see so much potential,” McCarthy said at his unveiling.
“The signings that the chairman, the club has made, means the intention is there.
“You know they want to compete, they don’t want to just fill up the numbers, they want to be up there at the top.”
“And I think when I had my opportunity at my first job as a coach, I didn’t do bad, and I think we overachieved.”
“And what with this club has in place already, it’s just for me to come in, get to know everybody else, and try and get all the players on board on the mission, what the club expects, where the club wants to be, and then we go in that direction.”
“The chairman wants top four, but my ambitions is far greater than top four.”
