    BENNI MCCARTHY got a JOB as a COACH with one of the BIGGEST CLUB, LEAGUE in the WORLD ( MANCHESTER UNITED) in a good place like the UK….

    But here is”YOU GUYS OWN”getting a JOB with a MUSHROOM CLUB in a MUSHROOM LEAGUE and COUNTRY…

      That’s harsh man…..cut him some slack besides the Zambian league is more attractive than our league currently,hopefully from there he’ll get a big overseas job, you never know. Besides Benni has coached 2 “small clubs” in South Africa before the Man united job,all without having national team experience with regards to coaching.

      Stupid remark

        Very stupid thoughtless remarks. He probably does not know jack about the round leather game other than to make noise. Mitcheeeew

  • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

    Yea….cut him some slack as Mr codex alluded.

    At least he is putting his cv out there and securing jobs.

    What should we say of the lazy ass, yet entitled ones who keep lying to us that their joblessness is as a result of their skin colour.

    They should go and ask Mr Amuneke and their other contemporaries how they do it.

    I’m sure one of the answers will be that you don’t just get jobs thrown at you with your empty cv just because you are an exinternational….Lmaooo.

    Average white nobodies dust their assess off and come to Africa (with all it’s problems) to grind themselves and become household names years later…..but lazy ass entitled internet gossips seat in the comfort of their homes and complain about not getting jobs because they are black skinned….LMAOoo.
