Johannesburg - Former Bafana Bafana striker Benni McCarthy looks set to join Ajax Cape Town to resuscitate his soccer career, reports the Sowetan.

The Urban Warriors have opened up negotiations with McCarthy’s business manager Rob Moore to join the Cape Town side.

Ajax chief executive officer George Comitis has confirmed that they wanted McCarthy, who has been without a club after English Premiership side West Ham United released him.

Moore and McCarthy could not be reached for comment.

Reports of McCarthy's rumoured move to Ajax Cape Town originally appeared in Soccer Laduma.

    Ah ah aaaah!

    A big mistake! Very big mistake!

      Adrian - 2011-07-14 11:09

      big mistake! why is that?......he has alot of experience and the younger strikers can learn alot from him.

      Rammsteen - 2011-07-14 11:56

      Hey Adrian, Benni's got experience in eating, dumping his country and talking to the press. Wave goodbye to Ajax near the top of the log if Benni's around!

      navarac - 2011-07-14 11:57

      Ja, Adrian - they'll pick up his bad-ass, I'm indispensable attitude!

      I dont think its a big mistake. Yes he made wrongs in his life and career but perhaps its a good thing and can now teach youngsters what not to do. Another point is that Benni was at one point in his career a world class striker, something no other south african player even achieved. He is past his prime but I believe with fitness he still has a lot of fire power left.

    He looks better suited to be a front rower for the Stormers.

  • MJM - 2011-07-14 10:46

    In bad times you go back home....hehehe funny neh.

  • kjac - 2011-07-14 11:03

    even as a front row player, he'll be a better player than most of the current PSL fools. SA football sucks.

      Commonsense - 2011-07-14 13:13

      so what???

  • Vernon - 2011-07-14 11:14

    Hey Benni ,be carefull who you step on on the way up because you will meet them on your way down .Pity.

  • Michael - 2011-07-14 11:22

    They'll have to knit together about 3 soccer tops for him to use as one. our refs will have to brace themselves, these guy likes harassing refs when things don't go his way.

      Adrian - 2011-07-14 11:35

      haag Micheal jy is boring,hou jou bek

  • RobinHood - 2011-07-14 11:33

    Will he fit in their stadium? Big ego, big gut......

  • Hayden - 2011-07-14 11:51

    Aaaaa no, this is a big mistake signing this fool. His a has-been & can train with the reserves. Ajax CT dont need him. Send him to Vasco where he can partner with Zuma. Aaaaarg

      Daffy - 2011-07-14 12:02

      Zuma signed with Supersport months ago, he was one of the stand out performers in th PSL last season, single handedly carried that crap Vasco team..shows how much you know about local football, you are must making a fool of yourself.

      paulmandlankosi - 2011-07-14 17:59

      This idiot does not even know that Zuma has left Vasco

      RacingShark - 2011-07-14 20:08

      I think Benni could do well in the PSL. We need more deadlier finishes in the PSL. Benni still has much to offer

  • brendon - 2011-07-14 12:06

    Keep him away from Golden Dish LOL if want him to fit into a Ajax Shirt LOL..

  • soba le boya - 2011-07-14 12:37

  • Kok - 2011-07-14 14:49

    Come home Benni. Cape Town will never reject you. You made us proud.

      paulmandlankosi - 2011-07-14 17:56

      By eating too much?

  • Expression - 2011-07-14 14:58

    BENNY you not necessarily my favorite player,but it would be good to see u in local football league.BUT you gotta grow up man.Don't get on the wrong side of supporters,coach and especially the media......

  • Kok - 2011-07-14 15:10

    Before you look to find fault in Benni's life, just have a look at your own first. Idiots!!!

  • mathews.mona - 2011-07-14 15:13

    Come back home dude, its over now!!

  • AjAxxxx - 2011-07-14 16:03

    you idiots. this guy won the champions league. Yes he's old and slow, but can easily play as a target striker for +-20min. look at inzagi. comon. learn.

  • Bra Pat - 2011-07-14 16:09

    pap sak

  • jaquanau100 - 2011-07-14 16:15

      kjac - 2011-07-14 16:49

      jaquanau100 these idiots are too thick to realize that even at his worst, he's better that the local PSL drab.

  • TeddyB - 2011-07-14 17:41

    Haai Shame! From Hero to Zero...

  • Jan - 2011-07-14 18:27

    good choice benny prove them wrong

  • - 2011-07-14 21:12

    Good signing, no matter what these negative people say. No striker in South Africa is better than Benni, fat or not. If he can get fit, I predict an exciting PSL season ahead for Ajax. Go Benni!!!! Go Ajax!!!!!!!
