Former South African coach Augusto Palacios believes country legend Benedict McCarthy should be handed the Bafana Bafana job.
Palacios insists McCarthy who currently handles Amazulu is the best person for the job as he is doing well in the local scene
“Pitso is currently in Egypt. Benni McCarthy is currently the coach doing well in the local league. According to my opinion, Benni McCarthy is the best option at the moment,” Palacios told KickOff.com.
“Benni knows the players. He is coaching in the PSL. He has played for Bafana Bafana before.
“He has the pedigree, character and has played football at the top international level. If they give him the position, he must be allowed to choose his own technical team.”
South Africa sacked Ntseki Molefe last week and they are set to appoint a new coach this month ahead of their 2022 World Cup qualifiers in which they are in the same Group with Ghana, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia.
