Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes feels that although Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov is getting praise after praise, Benni McCarthy is the real bargain buy of the season.
From the 22 goals McCarthy has scored this season (the same amount as Berbatov) 16 have come in the Premiership (five more than Berbatov) and whilst Berbatov is grabbing widespread acclaim (I'm not saying unfairly!) McCarthy hasn't gone unnoticed either and is ALSO said to be a target for MORE than one of the top four sides.
Hughes has hailed McCarthy the best striker Rovers have had since Alan Shearer, and has again reiterated that he will not be sold this summer. Hughes told the Daily Mail:
"Berbatov's had a great season although not as good as Benni's in the league. They say Berbatov is worth £30m, so you do the maths on how much Benni is worth. But he's not getting sold.
"Benni has been very gregarious, always has a smile on his face and appreciates the work others do for him.
"He has a total of goals here that hasn't been surpassed at this club since Alan Shearer. He has been exceptional and next year will be even better as he'll have the benefit of a season under his belt."
It's not a case of who is better or worse but credit has got to be given where it is due, and from some Spurs fans in the days or so more often than not it HASN'T been given to McCarthy or Blackburn Rovers Football Club, more often than not quite the opposite with a blatant lack of respect shown.
Value for money, buy of the season between the two, Berbatov £10.9 million, McCarthy £2.5 million, again you do the maths and it's a no brainer! And before you Spurs lot say it, McCarthy is the TRUE bargain out of the two…
Dimitar Berbatov is a superb footballer (I'm not doubting this, the guy is a genius) who has had a brilliant first season in England but Benni McCarthy IS no two ways about it World-Class, and proven beyond any doubt (he has been acknowledged as such around Europe and the World for the best part of a decade). How does he suddenly become anything less "just because he plays for Blackburn Rovers?"
