Benny McCarthy is a legend in South Africa and he is one of the most decorated football players in South Africa. Throughout his career he has achieved a lot and has done it all in the world of football. In my opinion I believe he is the trail blazer of South African football. Now sit back and relax while we list out his achievements in the world of football.

1. Ajax Amsterdam

Ajax Amsterdam is known to produce some of the best elite soccer players and it is no doubt in my mind that Benny McCarthy is one of those soccer players. Ajax Amsterdam has produced the likes of Wiljnaldum, Hakim Ziyech, Riyad Marez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Tadic.

At Ajax Benny McCarthy won the following:

- Erediviese Cup

- KNVB Cup (He won this cup twice with Ajax)

2. Celta vigo

Celta is also one of those team that has produced the elite players. Currently one of the best defender in soccer today that was produced by Celta is Virgil Van Dijk. However Benny McCarthy also played a big part in the development of this team, he even helped them compete for various competitions.

At Celta, Benny McCarthy won the following :

3. FC Porto

FC Porto is one of the biggest teams in Europe and any player who has played for Porto should feel honored. When Benny played as a FC Porto player he was being coached by José "GOAT" Mourihno. It had been alleged that Jose Mourihno turned Benny McCarthy into a beast striker for FC Porto.
