Benni the Hero
Our recent Carling Cup tie against Portsmouth provided a moment of inspiration, which, only a few noticed. After a Benni McCarthy clearance of a corner, a little 11 year old girl by the name of Ellen, was struck in the face, her neck tilting back followed by her crying.
As she was being comforted by her dad, to their surprise, our own Benni Mac went over to the stands, whilst the game was still in play. He waited until she was ok, then returned to the game.
The LET reports that Ellens Family were so surprised they wrote a letter of thanks to Blackburn Rovers. To their very surprise, Benni Mac replied with a signed jersey, an apology letter and photo.
During an interview with LET, Ellen quotes 'I'm a Blackburn Rovers fan now but I said to my dad I'm still a Portsmouth fan too.I would like to watch Blackburn play again.'
Credit must go to Benni, simply for being a nice human being. We hear so many stories about footballers and what they do wrong, yet here we have Benni Mac doing us all proud
