I would coach Kaizer Chiefs - Benni

Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates striker Benni McCarthy admits he would jump at the opportunity to coach Kaizer Chiefs.

McCarthy is edging closer to earning his coaching stripes after getting a UEFA A license and starting work on his UEFA Pro license.

The all-time Bafana Bafana top-scorer parted ways with Belgian side Sint Truiden earlier in the year, where he was assistant coach under Chris O'Loughlin.

"If I could get an opportunity and it was at Chiefs, why should I say no to one of the biggest teams in South Africa?," McCarthy told Soccer Laduma.

"If the opportunity arises, of course I would take it. For example, José Mourinho said he was a Chelsea man and now he is with one of their biggest rivals.

"It's a job at the end of the day and I'd have to try to get a job first of all. So if it's Chiefs, Sundowns or Ajax, I would have to look at it. If it's a project that excites me and I feel I could make a difference, I'd take it.

"If Pirates don't come for me but Chiefs do, I can't wait until I get old. So yeah, 100% I would coach Kaizer Chiefs. They are a big club so why would anybody in the whole world say no to Chiefs?"
