Benni's next move still unclear

Posted: 28 January 2013 Time: 12:42 pm

With just four days to go before the January transfer window closes, Orlando Pirates are hoping their desire to win the CAF Champions League will persuade Benni McCarthy to extend his stay with the club.

The 35-year-old striker has been included in Pirates' African Champions League team, despite the fact that his contract will run out at the end of the current season.

According to Fifa rules, Benni is entitled to hold discussions with any team during the January transfer window.

However, Pirates have stepped up their efforts to persuade Bafana Bafana's all-time goal scorer not to jump ship.

"The talks with Benni are taking place at a higher level and the best person who can really say whether or not he will remain with Pirates is the player himself," Pirates spokesperson Mickey Modisane tells KickOff.com.

"Benni is part of our Champions League team and he is still our player. There is really nothing further I can say," adds Modisane.

McCarthy's business manager, Rob Moore, has been quoted by the local media confirming that USA or China might be the next destination for the player.

a team manager at Chiefs told SA court that he was earning R100,000, Now from a hierarchy point of view if Bobby was not lying then this means no one earns more than Bobby at Chiefs. Its logical.

So Bennie earns 4 times more than a Chiefs team manager.......kanjani mara yeh.

This is why I've quit following transfer rumors. At the end of the day this article is saying absoloutely nothing. Just like those Rainford Kalaba ones. Some guy who has been promoted by SABC's Soccer 411 as the go to guy regarding transfers went as far as saying the Kalaba issue was a done deal. Rumors are a waste of time

Benni McCarthy, who weighs as much as a small truck at more than half a tonne, is attempting to diet while confined to a reinforced bed that he has not left for the past six years because he is so heavy.

He has gained more than 115kg since Joining Orlando Pirates after he was seen surplus by West Ham United. His diet includes a full ox, swimming pool sized milkshakes, bottom-less ribs and 4 KFC buckets.

Now weighing close to 198kg -- the size of 3 hefty rugby players -- McCarthy is still unable to move his swollen legs but hopes to get out of the house next month for only the third time in six years to celebrate his 30-something birthday.

He will still be in bed, hauled onto a tow truck for a trip to the training grounds outside his home. It will be a failed attempt when Gordan Igesund recalls him to the national team.

"It's a miracle I've got this far. I was going to kill myself two years ago when my wife left me, but God sent me excellent doctors," said McCarthy, his torso still huge with flaps of puffy white skin and sagging, fatty bulges.
