Comments 

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford gave credit to first team coach Benni McCarthy for helping him rediscover his goal scoring form.

On the "Rashford: Benni Has Definitely Helped Me A Lot" story, a reader affirmed Rashford's words by saying: 

"Rashford and Fernandes are right, Benni was very good as a Striker, with a very complicated style. It comprised of Township style, Cape Town style and a huge European influence. I can only imagine how good an influence he is to exceptional players like Rashford," says mthunzijack7

Ex-Man United player Quinton Fortune is set to continue his coaching journey as an Assistant at C.D Guadalajara in Mexico. 

The "Former Bafana star Fortune lands new coaching role" story, a reader wants to see more former Bafana stars involved in the national team: 

"We need to recruit these former players to lead Bafana Bafana instead of clueless pensioners like Brooks. Fortune, McCarthy and Pitso can transform Bafana Bafana," says Mpho1637. 

Kaizer Chiefs' Ngcobo, who hasn't seen as much game time in the DStv Premiership, but has expressed satisfaction with his personal progress in Amakhosi's first team. 

He'll hope to impress in Saturday's Carling Black Label Cup where Amakhosi take on Orlando Pirates in a highly anticipated Soweto Derby.

Some readers on the "Ngcobo delighted with personal progress while aiming for trophies at Kaizer Chiefs" story didn't have a lot of nice things to say about the Amakhosi starlet, with reader Sva2022 saying: 

"Previously, I thought this boy would progress but now I think he has reached his peak even before he ever reached it. He has nothing more to offer and would sit on the bench even at Chippa United. He just needs to stick it out at Chiefs where he has some sentimental value being their youth product or something."
