On today's SA Twitter highlights we have an established South African legend making waves, and a youngster coming through the ranks

There's the Bafana Bafana great, Benni McCarthy, who hasn't stopped smiling since getting his big opportunity to prove himself as a coach.

Local SA TV channel ENCA interviewed McCarthy recently and we will be able to watch his story, about how he progressed from a top striker to Cape Town City's new coach.

You can also read some healthy banter between Ajax Cape Town and City. Ajax is pointing at their posters on the City walls, while the newer Cape Town club is reminding Ajax that the famous South African footballer is at their team now.

Elsewhere, in the United States we've shown before that youngsters hoping to make waves in soccer have new options abroad. Have a look at this video of Tyrone Mondi who won the 2017 Black Arrow MVP at Detroit City.
