Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt is proud
of the success that his former player Benni McCarthy has enjoyed within a
short period since moving into coaching.
Hunt gave a 16-year old McCarthy his professional debut at Seven
Stars in 1995, and the Bafana Bafana record-goal scorer has had two
impressive years since his appointment as Cape Town City's coach.
He last weekend led the Citizens to the MTN8 trophy after defeating SuperSport United 4-1 on penalties.
"To be fair, really, I'm very, very proud of what he has achieved in
such a short space of time," Hunt told SuperSport Thursday Night.
"And what I like about the whole thing is that he has gone out and
got educated more. I don't care if you are the best player in the world;
you have got to do coaching education.
"What has impressed me in Benni's situation, is that he wants to do
better and is passionate about it. Nobody has played and achieved at his
level as a player.
"Unbelievable. I know where he has come from, that has been fantastic. Two years and he has been to two cup finals."
