BENNI McCarthy will be looking for a new job next season after Belgian side Sint Truiden confirmed he would leave his post as assistant coach at the end of the current campaign.

McCarthy follows head coach Chris O'Loughlin out the door as the Belgians look to put a new technical team in place having narrowly avoided relegation this season.

"Sint Truiden and Benni McCarthy have mutually agreed not to continue their collaboration. McCarthy will remain with us until the end of the current season.

"We thank him for the good cooperation and wish him much success," the club confirmed in a statement.

McCarthy and SA-raised O'Loughlin will remain in charge until the club completes their Europa League qualification tournament that started with a 1-0 defeat at home to Mechelen last weekend.

If they do not finish top of their qualification pool, it means the pair have five more games in charge of the club.

It also calls into question the future of Bafana Bafana midfielder May Mahlangu at the club, although it is understood the player is valued by Sint Truiden management.

Mahlangu has a contract with the club until the end of this season, with no option in place to renew, meaning he will become a free agent in July.

McCarthy joined Sint Truiden last September in what was his first official role as part of a technical team.

He had previously worked as a consultant with Scottish side Hibernian, helping their strikers towards the tail-end of last season.
