Fabian McCarthy happy to work his way up

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.
