Cape Town City FC ended the contract of head coach Benni McCarthy after a poor run of results for the club. Where to next for him?

Benni McCarthy has been sacked as head coach of Cape Town City Football Club.

The club released a statement on Twitter in the early hours of Monday morning announcing that McCarthy's contract had been terminated with immediate effect.

McCarthy has responded saying that he disappointed to end his time at the club.

In a tweet, he thanked the players, the fans and the community of Cape Town for their support during his term.

The former Bafana Bafana star was appointed head coach in 2017.

Assistant coach Vasili Manousakis will take charge of Cape Town City until a new coach is appointed.

Meanwhile, Mzansi Twitter has shared their opinions and thoughts on McCarthy's midnight axing.

Some have speculated that maybe McCarthy could takeover from Orlando Pirates interim coach Rhulani Mokwena after losing the Soweto derby on Saturday.
