McCarthy ready to quit Rovers - Agent

Published Add your comment

Benni McCarthy wants to leave Blackburn and will seeking a January move in a bid to revive his career, according to his agent.

The South Africa striker has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place this season, making just one start in 10 league games, while he has failed to score for Sam Allardyce's team since the start of the new campaign.

"Yes, Benni wants to leave Blackburn," Rob Moore told "He has not been given the chance to show his worth this season in the Premiership and there's no denying that it seems like he is not the type of player Sam Allardyce is looking for."

Moore revealed that McCarthy's fellow countryman Elrio van Heerden, who joined the club in the summer, may also be searching for a new club in a bid to boost his Bafana Bafana chances.

Moore added: "This has been a bad season at Blackburn for both Elrio and Benni - neither seem to be the kind of player that fits into the Blackburn system and both need to move on in January."
