'Comparison' Between Romain Folz and Manchester United Coach Benni McCarthy Made by AmaZulu Boss Zungu

  • AmaZulu FC president Sandile Zungu made assertions that caused tongues to wag in South African football
  • He stated that current coach Romain Folz is the best coach that the club has ever had
  • This is despite current Manchester United coach Benni McCarthy having led the team to its highest ever Premier Soccer League finish

Outspoken AmaZulu Football Club president Sandile Zungu once again went against the grain.

Zungu implied that current coach Romain Folz - who led the club to its first cup final in 30 years - was a better coach than former boss Benni McCarthy. The current Manchester United first-team coach guided Usuthu to a second-place finish in the league two seasons ago, the KwaZulu-Natal club's highest finish since the advent of the Premier Soccer League in 1996.

According to The Citizen, Zungu said said to Thabiso Mosia on SAFM last week:

“To be honest, Fohloza is the best coach we’ve ever had. Since he’s been here we’ve come to appreciate how much science there is in football. Everything he does is so detailed. Even though I didn’t know much about him, I’m amazed at what he does.”

Speaking of McCarthy, Zungu added:

“Benni McCarthy remains the people’s darling and everyone doesn’t want him lost to the local scene, including me, I’m a big fan. He did wonders for the team but when we parted ways, I was cautious of our ability to finish in the top eight, let alone top four which is what we had agreed upon.
"When the answer was not forthcoming, I did what I’m good at, which is to make a decision."

ETH heaps praise on McCarthy

Manchester United attacking coach Benni McCarthy is clearly doing a splendid job at the club.

The Bafana Bafana legend has played his part noticeably in the resurgence of the Red Devils resurgence from mediocrity, something which has garnered praise for him from all quarters.

The man who appointed him, Erik Ten Hag, openly stated the positive influence he has had on the club.

Evra credits McCarthy for Rashford resurgence

Bafana Bafana legend, Benni McCarthy is the toast of the town at the moment.

Marcus Rashford is firing on all cylinders for Manchester United at the moment, with forwards coach McCarthy being praised for the part he has played in the England striker's sudden resurgence, going into the 2022 FIFA World Cup and beyond.

Evra believes that what United is doing with Rashford is positive, because he appears happy.
