Cape Town – Newly appointed Sint-Truidense assistant coach
Benni McCarthy reveals his desire to win the Belgium Pro League title.
According to Soccer Laduma, the former Bafana Bafana striker
believes that Sint-Truidense are capable of winning the Belgium Pro League.
“I’m hoping that we
can, this season or next season, become champions of Belgium. If I didn’t think
that was possible then I wouldn’t come," said the 37-year-old.
"As a player I always wanted to win, I played for clubs
that wanted to become champions, and STVV won the second division and it’s very
possible that they can do it again.”
McCarthy admits that he was taken aback when the opportunity
came up for him to assist head coach
“I’m doing my UEFA A badges and I didn’t expect this
opportunity. Chris has a lot of faith in me. How? I honestly don’t know,"
McCarthy said at the unveiling.
“As a coach I’m just looking to work really and bring my
expertise as a footballer to help the young players. They have players from different
cultures and I’ve been a player coming to a new environment. So hopefully I can
come in and help.”
