Benni Wants To Be A Rover For Life

Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy has said that he could see himself ending his career at Ewood Park.

It's a far cry from the McCarthy we have heard from in the past (but it is something that is good to hear, hopefully his actions will speak louder than words though) but having recently signed his new contract the South African International now says that he could see himself finishing his career with the club, also once again saying he will be back to his best next season.

McCarthy told Sky Sports: "I'll be back to my old self, no more distractions. I'm looking to buy a house in Blackburn and become a local citizen and once I get all that sorted out I will give them something to think about over the holidays.

"When you come in first season and score 24 goals then the second season there are more obstacles.

"The competition is tougher now than it was last season. Unfortunately this year it has not been smooth sailing for me but now with the contract signed the club can be more at ease and the player can finish his football at this club.

"I would easily - that is why I signed. I can see myself finishing my football here.

"Look at Tugay, look at Brad Friedel. Those are the examples I am trying to follow
."

Good to hear from Benni, now follow these words with actions dude, and Sunday could be a good starting point as he is expected to be back in the squad to face Birmingham City.

I've said it before, but I'm happy to say it again I'm sure that we will see the best of Benni again next season and if we do the Premier League had better watch out as with Santa Cruz, Derbs and JR also around we have a fearsome strikeforce. As far as him finishing his career with us, all we can do is wait and so on that one!!!

He has had a strange season and I think being dropped from the South Arfican squad dented his pride and confidence - hopefully next season he will be back all guns blazing!

Benni is a great player, and having him convinced he is part of Blackburn Rovers is a good thing, because after saying he wanted to live, missing the African Cup and having a newcomer who scores tons of goals must have left him a bit dizzi. If he focuses well enough next season, he'll for sure be the world class player he has been his whole career

This is so much more like it. Benni needs to back this up now and I for one know he can do it.
