Fabian McCarthy says coaching is definitely in his future, but he insists he wants to work his way to the top rather than start at a big club.
The 43-year-old has had his UEFA B License pursuit halted by COVID-19, but he insists the setback is only temporary.
“I was supposed to go do my UEFA B License in Ireland at the end of May, but now unfortunately with the Coronavirus that has put a stop on everything; it has to be postponed and I will go do it next year again,” he told Phakaaathi.
Asked whether he would back himself as a top-flight coach, McCarthy responded: “That is aiming too high for me; I would like to start from the bottom and get an opportunity there.”
McCarthy was an integral part of the South African Under-23 side that qualified for the 2000 Olympics, and enjoyed massive success during his time with Kaizer Chiefs where, under coach Ted Dumitru, he was part of a defence which conceded just 11 times through the successful 2003/04 PSL campaign.
