Benni virtually seals Rovers exit
Benni McCarthy seems to have virtually ended his Rovers career with an outburst which is basically a public verbal transfer request.
Benni feels he is being singled out unfairly by Rovers boss Sam Allardyce and has stated he hopes the club will let him move on.
McCarthy unleashed somewhat of a tirade at the Daily Mail by saying - 'Enough's enough, I feel I've been stepped on too much and it's best I go,'
'I feel I'm being singled out unfairly. I wasn't any worse than the other lads, yet I'm the only one on duty from that game (against Sunderland) being asked to come in at 7am.
'Yes, I admit I've had issues with hitting the weight targets the manager has set and that's my fault, but I put 100 per cent in on the pitch and always try my hardest. It seems I'm being punished more than others.'
Benni has further rocked the boat by clarifiying he would like to stay in England and pressing Rovers to let him leave.
The 32-year-old striker continued - 'I'd like to stay in the England. This is a great league.
'I'm just unhappy with my situation and need to feel wanted again. I'm not getting any younger but I know I can still make an impact.
'This is a very big year for me. To come from South Africa and have the chance to play for my country in the World Cup is massive.
'I can't risk that by playing the odd game here and there for Blackburn. I need to play and I hope they will allow me to fulfil that dream.
'They got me for next to nothing and they've had a good return with more than 50 goals in about 130 games.
'Hopefully they won't ask an unreasonable fee and let me go when the window opens.'
I know a certain large, Walrus lookalike that won't like this one bit.... (hint : his nickname ryhmes with 'Wig Wam')
