Benni joins Bucs on two-year deal

Bafana Bafana’s record goalscorer returns to the PSL for the first time since leaving for Ajax Amsterdam in 1997.

McCarthy 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.

Bucs chairman Irvin Khoza, who watched the weekend’s Carling Black Label Cup at Soccer City alongside the striker, confirmed their new signing this afternoon.

“Late yesterday we concluded negotiations with [agent] Rob Moore. Now I want to welcome Benni to Orlando Pirates,” Khoza said.
