Cape Town - Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy is destined to one day take up the Bafana Bafana reins, according to Mamelodi Sundowns boss Pitso Mosimane.

Mosimane is no stranger to international management, having filled the post of South Africa's assistant coach between 2006 and 2010, before making the step up to head coach for the next two years.

And, with the two coaches set to pit their wits against each other in the Absa Premiership this coming Wednesday, Mosimane is expecting a stern test from the Citizens.

"Cape Town City are a good team," Mosimane told Sowetan Live. "Benni shows that he wants it, he puts his skin on it.

"Benni wants it and I see him as a future Bafana coach."

He continued: "The game against City is going to be hard. We are all having the same challenge. It's a race and we should not be emotional about it.

"It's like a race of Liverpool and Man City... it goes like this and goes the other way.

"You've got to keep calm, you've got to keep cool. It's a long way to go. So I don't think it's a two way race, City is popping up.

"So probably we can cancel each other along the way."
