Who would've thought that a South African head coach could be working in Europe so soon?

Despite their success locally, South Africa's legendary coaches Gordon Igesund, or even PSL legends like Ted Dumitru had not gone on to get a chance in Europe over the years.

Could Benni McCarthy become the first? That would be surprising when you consider that Benni was deemed inexperienced for even the PSL, until he proved himself at Cape Town City last season.

Now that he's finishing his coaching badges, he is linked with this move in Scotland. Is St Mirren a good option for McCarthy? Take a look at the other big names in the rumoured short list!

With Steven Gerrard coaching Rangers next season, maybe Scotland will attract more big name former players who want to prove themselves in the hot seat.
