INEOS to make unpopular decision with Manchester United coach likely leaving this summer



| Last Updated:


INEOS have seemingly made an unpopular decision, with Benni McCarthy set to leave Erik ten Hag’s coaching staff at Manchester United this summer.

Benni McCarthy was introduced as one of Erik ten Hag’s new first-team coaches at Manchester United back in July 2022, with the South African employed to work with the club’s attacking players

He has since spent two seasons at United and has worked with those such as Marcus Rashford, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Rasmus Højlund, and is particularly credited with helping the former score 30 goals last season.

McCarthy has become a popular figure among United players and fans during his time at Old Trafford as a coach, and he is often spotted joking and laughing with the stars at United while handing them crucial advice on their performances and training.

However, it seems as though he is set to leave United in the summer after he hinted that he may be leaving United in the summer to return to the position of management with South African giants Kaizer Chiefs.

“If the opportunity arises to coach Kaizer Chiefs, obviously you will have to sit down and think about it,” McCarthy said of his future to 947 Joburg. “Like I said, you don’t say no to an institution.”

He continued: “My time here (at United), if the club wants me to continue in the role that I have, I would be grateful. It would be amazing. But I would miss having to wait another year or two years to become a head coach.

“Being back in the coaching area, I miss that with a passion. Some day it’s going to happen and I’m going to go back to that. I don’t know if I’m staying or going because the club is going through their whole process with the manager and the rest of the coaching staff.”

Back in March, McCarthy said: “With the knowledge I’ve gained and everything I’ve contributed to the team – I want to take that and then eventually become a manager. Because once you’ve sat in the hot seat at a club and you’ve experienced the adrenaline of decision-making and leading, you want to experience that again one day.”

McCarthy is set to commit to another contract with his current deal set to expire at the end of June, and with no news yet on whether Ten Hag will continue at Old Trafford, his future is in the air.
