Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana striker Benni McCarthy insists he will not rush into management while still studying for his professional coaching badges.

South Africa's all-time top scorer, who is considered as the greatest footballer the country has ever produced, is currently finishing off his UEFA Pro License exams.

Despite indicating there's no rush, McCarthy did hint that a return to work in the local scene is definitely on the cards after a short stint as an assistant manger at Belgian side St Truiden.

"I have a UEFA A license and I am busy with the UEFA Pro License which I will finish in 2017, the 38-year-old told The Sun.

"I'm keen on coaching and return to Mzansi to impart my knowledge to the country. Coaching Pirates or the national team would be a difficult task, but you know I'm ambitious.

"I want to give back and work with players with the same mentality as me. I want to coach players who know what it means to wear a club's jersey."
