As interesting as the search for the new Bafana coach, are the rumours doing the rounds about a new coach for Orlando Pirates.
The Buccaneers have been without a boss since Muhsin Ertugral resigned after the 6-1 loss to SuperSport United in November.
One of the more interesting candidates, if you believe the media, is Benni McCarthy.
The former Bucs striker just got his Uefa A diploma last week.
According to Benni, he could have started a level up, a B licence, as he is a former player. But he wanted to start from the bottom.
Many might say the Pirates job is too big for him as a first timer, but I think he would take it in a heartbeat.
And he would automatically have the respect of all the players because they know what he is capable of and what he has achieved.
I don’t think he or Pirates would have anything to lose, to be honest.
It would certainly be an interesting move IF it did happen.
