AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy says rumours that he has been in talks with Orlando Pirates are not true.

McCarthy, who scored 24 goals in two-and-a-half seasons for Pirates in his playing days, has been linked with a return as a manager after guiding AmaZulu to second place and CAF Champions League football last season.

But the 43-year-old tactician, who has recently returned from his off-season break in Scotland, has refuted the rumours.

“On the question that was asked, that I’ve had discussions with Orlando Pirates. No, I’ve not had a discussion with anyone,” McCarthy told Marawa Sports Worldwide as quoted by idiskitimes.

“I was not approached by Pirates; I haven’t had a chat with the chairman or any one of Orlando Pirates for that matter.

“Orlando Pirates has their own coaches and I’m sure they are very happy and content with what they have. So I didn’t have any meetings or discussions of taking the job at Orlando Pirates.”

On his status at AmaZulu, McCarthy explained: “I’ve got two more years on my contract.

“So that’s still a long time for me to go and achieve a lot of things here at AmaZulu. I’m happy and the way things look, I’m gonna finish my contract here at the club.

“But a lot of things can happen in football, a lot of things always changes in an instant, so new contract and all that, it will come I think.”
