“We note that the Benni McCarthy’s name comes at a time when AmaZulu are top of the log standings and it might appear that SAFA wants to derail the club’s good run,” said Safa.

McCarthy, who is doing an incredible job with AmaZulu in the DStv Premiership this season, has been widely reported to be set to be named as the new Bafana coach, and was certainly one of the names on a five-man shortlist for the job of leading the senior men’s national team.
Safa, interestingly enough, did not deny McCarthy’s imminent appointment, but instead said that they didn’t want it to look like they were trying to put a spanner in the works of AmaZulu’s push for a remarkable league title.
