Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns defender Fabian McCarthy has urged former footballers to give back to the game by going into coaching.

Having attained his CAF B and SAFA Level 1 coaching licenses, McCarthy believes ex-players have a duty to help aspiring youngsters to achieve their dreams.

The Vryberg-born coach is looking to join the list of local ex-footballers, including Gavin Hunt, Pitso Mosimane, Neil Tovey, Steve Komphela, who went on to be successful coaches.

"As former players we must be involved in giving back to the game and coaching is my next destination," McCarthy told KickOff.

"Look, a number of these youngsters only need a chance to show their potential. You will be amazed at the high standard of football that is displayed during such tournaments.

"As former players, it is our duty to mentor these young players by giving them advice on the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse."
