Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy really does LOVE Champions League football, and he feels he can achieve this at Ewood Park.
The South African makes no secret of his desire to play Champions League football again, and the fact that Rovers believe that they CAN get this again at Ewood is a defining factor behind him deciding that he wants to commit his future to the club, which he looks like doing shortly.
McCarthy told Sky Sports News: "I'm enjoying my football here.
"The rumours have all gone now and I can just relax and concentrate on playing football.
"The club has been in talks with my agent but for the moment there is far more important things to worry about, such as getting Blackburn into the Uefa Cup or Champions League."
McCarthy won the Champions League with Porto in 2004, and is DESPERATE to play in the competition again before his career ends, and from the looks of it he is willing to end it here, as he feels he will get this.
He added: "The club know that before I hang up my boots from playing football I want to play in the Champions League again.
"The fact they are thinking Champions League football can be played here in the next few years will do for me and I can pledge my future here.
"A lot of players in the squad don't know what it is like to play in the Champions League: it is an amazing experience, and that is what I want the whole team to be feeling.
"People say these days that footballers are very glamorous but the Champions League is the type of glamour that you want."
