Against Al Ahli Tripoli, Ncikazi led Pirates to the CAF confederations cup finals recently.
To Ncikazi, McCarthy has sent a special message claiming that he wants nothing but the best for the ex-Golden Arrows coach. McCarthy has been heavily linked with the Pirates coaching position.
In spite of their local troubles, Pirates have managed to hold their own in the European tournament, finishing top of group B and progressing all the way to the finals of the competition.
Both Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids will be relieved of the pressure they had been under following their disappointing domestic performances.
They may also be able to save their employment if they win the event.

The coach went on to say that he only wants the best for Ncikazi.
