Over the years, most siblings have joined the PSL to share family stories that will be passed down.
Not every sibling story has a happy ending, though. Some just fade away into obscurity after signing their first professional contract.
During the PSL era, some of the most famous siblings took South African football by storm over the years. Benni and Jerome McCarthy are without a doubt the most famous of their siblings. Both of them were born and raised in Cape Town, and they started playing football in their home province before going to play for Ajax in Europe and the now-defunct Manning Rangers in Durban, respectively.
Benni McCarthy and Jerome McCarthy
Benni McCarthy would become famous in Europe and England, showing that he was the most talented of the siblings. In the case of Jerome, his career was rocked by scandals because, near the end of it, he was charged with doping and pleaded guilty. But Jerome gets the job instead of Mark, who is a lot younger.

The talented siblings were born into a family of four, with Mark, who also played professional football, being the last child to be born. Sources say that Mark spent some time in the USA and then went back to South Africa, where he tried out for Bloemfontein Celtics and Supersport United before dropping off the map.
Mark McCarthy has kept a low profile since he retired at a younger age. We found out what he does for a living or what he does on the side by looking at his Instagram account. Sources say that Mark McCarthy is still a football fanatic. He still runs his YouTube channel, The Football G, which has videos from the English Premier League, the Spanish La Liga, the German Bundesliga, the French Ligue 1, and mostly the UEFA Champions League.
