Earlier today Orlando Pirates FC officially announced Benni McCarthy’s signing to the team. McCarthy has signed a 2 year contract with “The happy people” and will be sporting jersey #17. Benni returns to the PSL since leaving for Ajax Amsterdam in 1997. Benni said his biggest goal was earning the fans’ respect. “Benni told last week that a move to Pirates appeals to him as he wants to become the first player to win both the Uefa and CAF Champions League titles”.

From a personal point of view I think that Pirates made the best decision taking Benni, (if they didn’t I’m sure Naturena would have been a good home for Benni). Despite issues about his “heavy weight” (and besides Benni has lost all that weight)etc, he has a lot to offer to any team, not only does he have the experience of playing abroad but he is still one of the most respected soccer players to come out of the country and will inspire our younger players.

I won’t even lie, I’m a bit jealous that Pirates have Benni…but then again we have Parker, who also signed a 2 year deal, with Kaizer Chiefs. So SA’s biggest soccer rivals have two of the best players respectively in the country…this is going to be a very interesting season. (Just imagine the first season’s derby and both Parker and McCarthy get to play…should be amazing).

Welcome home Benni :-)
