McCarthy open to offers (VIDEO)

Blackburn Rovers' striker Benni McCarthy looks back at his first season at the Lancashire club in this video interview, saying he was as surprised as everybody else at his successful 19 goal return for Mark Hughes' men, but admits he would not turn down an opportunity to leave the club in order to have another chance at the Champions League.

The infamous WKD Football Awards interview finally witnessed with my own eyes (and ears!) In fairness to Benni after watching this it isn't quite the "I want to leave" that has been portrayed is it. He is clearly a little uneasy with some questions asked and is looking for something more than a "modest club" but isn't exactly disgrespectful as had been suggested! If a Champions League Club does come in for him he will go though, let's give it another season at least though Benni and see what happens here, you never know this "modest club" might surprise you yet (not that I am saying we WILL break into the top four, that would be foolish!) If you haven't watched this, check it out. It took a while to buffer but played like a charm.

That's what all the fuss was about???? You can actually see the point when he just sets off on the usual McCarthy ramble and can't figure out a way to stop himself talking. At first, he's almost suggesting that we will be looking at Champions league football here, but when the interviewer mentions moving to another club, he starts to fall over his own words. No doubt he would consider a move if one was offered, but he doesn't sound like a man who isn't enjoying himself here in the slightest.

He sounds fine... he aint pandering for a move. he suggest he has paid his debt but doesnt exactly tout himself to a club. Its just the media twisting his words!!!! (again)... what does everyone reckon coz that nearly as bad as everyone made out!!!

Im making observations as i go here do bear with me. First off, he sounds like hes from London, not Cape town lol, since when has Wales and Poland been southern europe then??? get a map out Benni! One day, probably, hopefully, jesus Benni, not keen on leaving us are ya lol. Im still a Blackburn player, so I can't say whether i am going to go or stay??? If ur a Rover, you are staying LOL Finally, I love CL football, i miss CL football, I would love to play CL football again soon, Having a years rest from CL football was really really hard and one day hopefully i can play CL football again but I AM NOT SAYING I AM LEAVING BLACKBURN GEEZ, not that keen on leaving then Benni, but you emphasised the point well enough i felt.

All in all, not much there, the interviewer being a tad naughty with the line of questioning but he really misses CL footy lads, so lets hope we make the UEFA KO rounds and fingers X'd that Barcelona and AC milan get knocked out of CL and into UEFA, then Benni would be happy.......Right?

Just as I suspected. Media manipulation. That interview (as I have rambled on about to my bro, Dad and mates) was never going to say forthright that benniu wanted to leave. It merely intimates that he would like to play CL footy again. Which footballer wouldn't!!!! I feel, when he said, 'I am a Blackburn player and I am happy at Blackburn', that he meant that. I think he is happy at Rovers and would be happy should he still be here next season if a bid doesn't arrive!!! Benni and Bellars it is then!
