  • Manchester United is arguably the hottest team in Europe since the end of the 2022 FIFA World Cup
  • They are on an incredible run which has seen them claim one trophy, with three others within reach
  • Benni McCarthy has played a key role in the Red Devils' revival under the tutelage of Erik ten Hag

Manchester United's resurgence in the 2022/23 season has proven thus far to not have been a false dawn.

After sleep-walking through a disastrous and embarrassing previous campaign, the Red Devils look like their old selves - during the days of Sir Alex Ferguson, that is - once again.

This has seen them clinch the Carabao Cup under new manager, Erik ten Hag, with the real possibility they could win either or all of the remaining competitions they are still involved in.

He was surprisingly named by the Dutchman in this position last August to much acclaim and perhaps more skepticism.

Now, one of the club's most famous supporters, Stephen Howson - a fixture on the popular YouTube channel, Stretford Paddock - has sat down on his own channel and given an in-depth review of what the Bafana Bafana legend has done right since his appointment.

Howson, a coach himself, said of McCarthy:

"I'm desperate to find out what a McCarthy really looks like. There is no doubt that he has been in ten Hag's ear about changing the system. There is no doubt that he is a great character to come along to the club."

South Africans have taken to social media to celebrate former striker, McCarthy for his role in Manchester United's recent Carabao Cup triumph.

The ex-Bafana star has been the club's forwards coach since last year and he is widely credited for the revival of English star, Marcus Rashford.

McCarthy's influence has been lauded far and wide, with South Africans and United fans happy to see him holding the Carabao Cup trophy.
