Former Ivory Coast and Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has faith in Benni McCarthy achieving something big one day.
Toure believes that the current Manchester United first-team coach can gain the necessary experience in his endeavours that can eventually help an African nation win a FIFA World Cup for the very first time.
According to IOL, Toure, a four-time African Footballer of the Year said:
“I think it is a huge step for him because it’s important to get a job at an elite club that has a top coach. That coach will give you experience and your vision as a coach is going to get better. Maybe when he stops at United, he can bring the experience to Africa.

Comedian Dillan Oliphant hilariously praises Benni McCarthy for Manchester United's victory over Liverpool
One individual is determined to enjoy Manchester United's 2-1 victory over Liverpool last night for its full value.
As reported by Sports Brief, South African comedian Dillan Oliphant released a video on social media in which he jokingly praises first-team coach and compatriot Benni McCarthy for Erik Ten Hag's men's win. Jadon Sancho put the home side at Old Trafford into an early lead in the first half, which was then doubled by Marcus Rashford in the second stanza.
Mohamed Salah pulled one back for the visitors late in the match. Oliphant then ended his monologue with a jab aimed at former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen, who he curses at the end of his videos out of hate-love-hate principle.
