Benni McCarthy is not put off by the new strikers to arrival at Blackburn Rovers this summer (not forgetting those already here!!!) quite the opposite in fact, he is buoyed by it.
Mark Hughes has added Maceo Rigters, and more recently Roque Santa Cruz to of course Benni, Matt Derbyshire and Jason Roberts, not forgetting Paul Gallagher and Francis Jeffers (although one, or both may be living on borrowed time?!?!) which could threaten McCarthy's place in the side, but he is not frightened by the thought of this, which is VERY pleasing to hear.
McCarthy has taken a very positive view to the competition he will now face (and is excited by it) with him believing (and he is right!) it is EXACTLY what Rovers need to challenge for the UEFA Cup places, maybe even the Champions League spots this season.
McCarthy told Sky Sports News:
"The more competition we get, the better.
"Like we've always said, this is a serious club and we try to get into the Uefa Cup and the Champions League places.
"The better quality players we get in, the stronger the team will be."
