Mzansi Reacts To Benni McCarthy’s Appointment As National Team Coach
Following news from City Press that Benni McCarthy will be assuming the position as Bafana Bafana head coach, football lovers have taken to social media to share how they feel.
Below are some Twitter reactions to the news.
Ole’ Gunnar Solksjaer was called a PE coach. He’s 2nd in the EPL. Take the opportunity now! U will succeed with a positive mindset. U deserve the opportunity, Benni. If U need advice, Jomo Sono, Pitso ‘Jingles’ Mosimane, Jose Mourinho & Ruud Gullit will be eager to assist U. 🇿🇦

Terrible decision Benni, wildly ambitious and somewhat foolish knowing how SAFA operates… Was doing a tremendous job at Usuthu, would’ve stayed a couple more years😭

1. Best of good luck to him.
2. It will inevitably end in tears whatever he does. Bafana Bafana and Safa are irredeemable.
3. Hope that he recovers his coaching career afterwards and goes on to greater things like Pitso did.https://t.co/iOVCwVnJce

He thinks he will succeed where others have failed? They will chase him out as ruthlessly as they did with other the coaches. Coaching Bafana is the dead end for many a promising/qualified coach. He will soon remember Usuthu & KZN hospitality.

Safa did the best thing to get somebody who played football at the highest level. Now its time that within Safa leadership there should be somebody who may have played at the highest level to sync leadership and team managers/coaches.

Wrong move Benni. He should have stayed at AmaZulu.
Once he lose couple of matches the ‘journalists’ will be roped in to push him out plus ona le pelo e nnyane.
SAFA is led by ANC comrades.
