Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes does not want to have to fend off offers for his star players all summer, and this includes Benni McCarthy. In fact he plans for quite the opposite, keeping star names, welcoming some back from injury and bringing in others!
Although McCarthy has adapted fairly quickly to the Premiership, after getting this first season out of the way I fully expect him to be even better next term, a view that Hughes shares.
So Hughes is looking to keep his best players this summer and that includes McCarthy, and rather than selling players (as we are under no pressure to do so) he is looking to add further quality to make Rovers the force to be reckoned with we all feel they can be.
"I spent most of this time last year fighting off interest in my players and I hope I don't have to do that with Benni.
"He signed a four-year contract and his attitude has been first-class even though he has struggled to adapt to English football sometimes.
"Craig Bellamy was a big player to replace when he left and Benni - who we tracked for 18 months at Porto - has come in and done a great job.
"I will be adding players to the squad in the summer and with people like Robbie Savage, Steven Reid and Andre Ooijer to come back from injuries, Blackburn is going to be a great place to play."
