McCarthy vows to fire Rovers into top four

Confident Benni McCarthy has vowed to fire the goals to take Blackburn into the Premiership's top four.

The 28-year-old former Porto striker has arrived at Ewood Park in the wake of Craig Bellamy's departure believing he can keep winning the trophies he has been used to throughout his career.

McCarthy has cost Rovers around £2.5million after a year long chase to sign the South Africa international.

Now McCarthy, who has won doubles with Ajax and Porto, said: 'I am used to finishing in the top four and being top scorer. I believe I can do that with Blackburn and be amongst the top four or five scorers in England.

'I must feel that way otherwise there is no ambition for me, Blackburn have won the title and been in Europe. Now they are back there again and I believe we can achieve a top-four finish.

'I am experiencing an amazing time in my career, I am in England at last, and Blackburn have made it possible.

'I am just grateful to this club that they kept trying, they waited for me for a long time. Over 12 months, and they have kept hanging in there and made it happen.

'I hope now I can give them the best football that I have left to give.

'From what I have seen they have got everything it needs to be successful, but maybe I can produce that little bit of quality that I have, that bit of extra experience from playing in Holland, Portugal and Spain.

'Maybe I can bring that extra flair and class to the team to help win medals.'

He added: 'Portugal was all about technique and skill, Spain is the same, but in England it is work rate and strength. I have to be confident that I can produce my skills in this environment.

'I know I have to be hard and fit, but I feel I can fit in. I have done that in training here I believe, and I know that Blackburn have a reputation for fitness and strength.

'So if I can produce my skill here, I will be able to do so in the league games.'
