Ajax CT open talks for Benni

2013-01-04 10:46

Johannesburg - Ajax Cape Town have started negotiations for the services of Orlando Pirates star Benni McCarthy.

According to the soccerladuma.co.za website, McCarthy is in the last six months of his contract with the Buccaneers, which means that Ajax are within their rights to talk to the player and agent for pre-contract.

Soccer-Laduma sources have confirmed that Pirates have yet to show any indication as to whether they would like to extend McCarthy's contract, and the player is keen to secure his future as soon as possible.

When McCarthy first came back to South Africa from English Premier League side West Ham United at the end of the 2010/11 season, it was with the intention of signing for Ajax. But after training with the club, management dragged their feet in regards to offering him a deal and Pirates swooped to sign the forward.

McCarthy went on to enjoy a great season with the Pirates last term, helping the Sea Robbers lift a second consecutive treble.

This season, he has not contributed as much after being sidelined for a long period with injury.

If Pirates are to retain his signature, they will have to act soon as the Urban Warriors are determined to get their man.

      Aj there are measurements on each and every race and its a same case on Benny. This boy is still on but what he needs is when you field him don't expect him to run for the entire 90 minutes just for his legs. Benny can still bring on a tough competition and take a lot of energy out of these youngsters.

    Everyone who follows soccer closely, hope realises the pattern Pirates has taken in the last two season and this current one. In the last 2 seasons it started low on the log but by this time it would be second, it is slowing going back to the top, for another title. The secret is consistency, commitment and nothing else, unless Chiefs keeps its eye focused, Pirates will claim another title again. Come buccueneer! Nimohola Tee!
