Cape Town - Belgian side Sint Truiden confirmed that former Bafana Bafana striker Benni McCarthy will leave his post as assistant coach at the end of the season.

According to Times Live, the 38-year-old mutually agreed with the club not to continue their relationship.

Reports suggest that Sint Truiden terminated McCarthy’s contract as well as head coach Chris O'Loughlin.

The duo has six games left with the club including their Europa League qualification second-leg encounter against KV Mechelen. Sint Truiden lost the first-leg 1-0 at home.

McCarthy penned a deal with the Belgian side in September 2015 after a stint with Hibernian as a striker consultant in Scotland.

O'Loughlin says that when joining the club the Belgian Pro League was six games in already after Sint Truiden was promoted.

He adds that experience counts in the league which is something they lacked in while luring better players became a problem as they don't have big budget to work with.
