Benni: This one's for the fans

2012-12-07 10:20

Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates striker Benni McCarthy hopes to give the Ghost something to talk about for months to come when they take on Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

According to website, the first Soweto derby of the new PSL season takes centre-stage this weekend, with leaders Chiefs heading into the match with a three-point advantage over the Buccaneers.

McCarthy, who made his return from two months out with a hamstring strain on Wednesday, said: "The derby is the talk of the country. It's the two biggest teams, first and second on the log. It will be a very good encounter."

He added: "Hopefully we will able to give people the spectacle they would have come to witness. We are confident we will come out victorious in this one."

Speaking of his return from injury, which came as a substitute in the goalless draw against Chippa United in midweek, McCarthy added: "It feels so good to be back, I missed being on the field.

"It was a nice run but unfortunately we didn't get what we came here for. Overall, it was a good test before the big one."

    Lucky Lekgwathi said the same thing when you were to take on The Chilli Boys. And did you guys keep your words? The answer is NO. So don't get your hopes up. You might disappoint yourselves. Leave a room for disappointment. I am a Chiefs fan. We will just see what tomorrow have got in store for us. Let the best team win. *Khosified*

    Intelligent players(if there r any) do the talking in the field. Bennie still suffers from verbal diarrhoea. the stay in EPL has thought him nothing

      Point of correction Benni has the right t express himself... He has proven to each and every soccer player and fan around the world that he is a prolific player that is highly rated. He doesn't need to prove to any1 on the field; that stage has past for Benni. Benni achieved it in England, Holland, Italy, Portugal and South Africa. If there is a player that needs to voice themselves in SA then Benni deserves that right, love him or hate him He did win Uefa for Jose Mourinho...... *just saying*
