If Benni McCarthy's words are anything to go by then he would renew his contract with Orlando Pirates.

The former Bafana Bafana international striker is certainly not in two minds regarding his club preference. McCarthy's contract with Pirates in its last few months.

"I have an amazing relationship with the chairman [Dr. Irvin Khoza]… We have an understanding," he tells KickOff.com. McCarthy suggested that the ball is in Pirates' court whether they want to keep him.

"If he [Khoza] calls me tomorrow I will go sit down with him… I actually spoke to him recently and we will speak again after the Afcon. I don't see myself venturing out elsewhere… I'm a Buccaneer for life," he adds.

The 35-year-old's contract with Bucs expires at the end of June.

That's good to hear. I wonder what will the chiefs fans say. They'll start to label him with all sorts of names though they wanted him.

Fact: he is a buccaneer for life!
