Cape Town – Former Bafana Bafana striker Benni McCarthy admits that he wants to manage a club in the Barclays Premier League.

According to Soccer Laduma, the once prolific striker has since stepped into the managerial realm but only as an assistant at Belgium club Sint-Truiden.

"It is very strange to be a coach. I just hope and pray that we succeed," said McCarthy.

"We work hard to make a difference in these young players.

"My biggest ambition is to manage in the English Premier League one day," the 37-year-old added.

Sint-Truiden find themselves in a bad patch having lost two consecutive fixtures after starting so brightly under Chris O'Loughlin [head coach] and McCarthy’s guidance having won two games and drawing one.

The side currently find themselves in seventh spot on the Begian Jupiler Pro League.
