Sam's Fitness Warning For Benni Mac
Sam Allardyce has warned Benni that he needs to keep in shape to help him maintain his form and secure his place in the South Africa line up when the nation hosts the World Cup in 2010.
Benni has been back to his best in recent weeks with his predatory instincts in full flow.
However, Sam has warned Benni not to rest on his laurels.
Allardyce, speaking to everyones favourite The Sun, said -'Benni sometimes is his own worst enemy, [he is] a very talented player but not quite at the fitness levels he could be at,'
'Get that right and he plays more and more. Benni`s been up and down too much. He was on a massive up, [and now] he`s been on a massive down for too long.
'At his age [31-years-old] he has to be spot on, as fit as he can be. If he wants to produce his best [then] that is the key element to having a career for as long as he wants.'
Wise words indeed - Benni for my money is technically our best player. It is just his attitude which suffers sometimes.
But no doubt he can be our saviour this season.
