Rovers Call the Shots
Speculation regarding the future of Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy has been growing but he says his future is down to the club.
McCarthy took his Premiership goals tally 16 on Saturday, making it 22 in total in what has been a VERY impressive first season in English football. As such the 29-year-old has been linked with various clubs including Manchester United, and most recently Chelsea.
The South African International (or is it former International? I get confused as he retires, then comes out of retirement so often!) will leave his future in the clubs hands, although he will not be demanding a move as he is happy to replay the faith the club showed in him, so is happy to stay if wanted.
Speaking in the Daily Star, McCarthy said:
"If the club decides to sell me, it's their call, not my call.
"I am just trying to play my best football and give everything I've got. Then whatever happens, happens.
"Blackburn showed a lot of faith in me, so I'm very grateful for that."
I did have fears recently that perhaps we may lose Benni, and others but feel increasingly confident that we will keep him and the others despite obvious interest.
