Blackburn Rovers have been quick to dismiss any chance of Benni McCarthy moving to Manchester United, or anyone else for that matter during the summer.
A source, said to be close to Rovers has been quick to counter any thoughts that McCarthy could be set for a quick Rovers exit by saying comments attributed to McCarthy "were taken out of context". This source said:
"There's nothing in this as far as we are concerned.
"We fully expect Benni to be with us next season, and that's certainly what the manager and the board are planning for."
McCarthy's comments were apparently published firstly in the Manchester United match day programme at the weekend, ahead of the Premiership clash. They then appeared in the national press on Monday.
Whenever a player, especially a star player comes out with such comments your first reaction is, are they true or not. Being in an offical Manchester United programme you would think yes. So personally I'm not sure these have been taken out of context too much. From what I've seen, in fairness to the press (who can be awful!) the same quotes from the programmes interview (I've not seen the programme so I couldn't say if the interview was originally in it or not?) are the same quotes being used without putting too much spin on it, other than the obvious, "Rovers fear losing McCarthy" etc.
Players have to have aspiration and levels to set themselves but the constant thoughts from Rovers players expressing desires to play elsewhere are beginning to annoy me a little. We will ALWAYS find it hard to keep hold of our best players, we're not naive enough to think otherwise, but while they are wearing the blue and white halves of Rovers they should focus purely on that. Have their dreams and set their targets but maybe keep more of them to themselves…
