Benni's 2-year Pirates move confirmed

[Posted 02 Aug 2011]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Benni is now a Buccaneer! can confirm that Benni McCarthy officially became an Orlando Pirates player after signing a 2-year deal to join the Buccaneers on Tuesday morning.

Pirates announced the deal to land McCarthy at a press conference which took place at 12 noon on Tuesday.

“Late yesterday we concluded negotiations with Rob Moore (Benni' agent). Now I want to welcome Benni to Orlando Pirates,” Khoza said during the press conference.

"We are happy to have him in the team. He still has a lot to offer to football in the country and the team as well.

"He will be a great addition to the team that we have. We are looking to work with him for even more than the two years that we have signed. We are happy to have him in the team," Khoza added.

The move to Pirates sees McCarthy returning to the ABSA PSL after leaving the country to join Ajax Amsterdam in 1997, spending about 13 years in Europe, which saw the player ply his trade in Holland (with Ajax), Spain (with Celta Vigo), Portugal (Porto) and England where he featured for Blackburn Rovers before moving to West Ham recently.

It appears that there is no doubt in the minds of Bucs fans that their new prized asset will deliver, as a throng of Bucs fans literally begged the player to join Pirates at the airport last week.

McCarthy was given his favourite number 17 in the Pirates squad, as per his specific request.
