Blackburn sign Benni McCarthy

FC Porto striker Benni McCarthy has signed for premiership side Blackburn Rovers .McCarthy who was bought by Porto for 3.5 million euros made the move for an estimated fee of 2.5 million pounds.

McCarthy is best remembered as the player whose two goals led to Manchester United’s exit from the 2004 Champions league,which Porto went on to win. McCarthy is likely to pair up with ex Wigan and WBA player Jason Roberts at Ewood Park.

McCarthy is a regular for South Africa and played for Spanish club Celta Vigo before moving to Porto.The Premiership will represent a stiff challenge for him,though.
