Benni McCarthy robbed….

Former South Africa international and Champions League winner Benni McCarthy has been robbed at gunpoint at a barber’s shop in South Africa, according to the AP news agency. The agent of McCarthy – who played for Blackburn and West Ham in the Premier league – said the 2004 Champions League-winner with Porto was targeted in the Johannesburg shop, where armed men stole jewellery from him. A man reportedly pointed a gun at McCarthy’s face and demanded his watch, earrings and wedding ring, but the footballer – who called time on his career in 2013 after a spell at South African club Orlando Pirates – was not hurt in the incident
