The 43-year-old had an illustrious career with English Premier League giants, Arsenal, where he just missed out on winning the UEFA Champions League with the team.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, Campbell revealed what it was like to defend a player like McCarthy, who at the time, plied his trade for West Ham United.

“I think Benni sometimes could be quite unpredictable. He had quite a strong upper body as well, so you had to be aware of what he was trying to do. He is definitely one of the best centre-forwards South Africa has had exported. You know, you had to watch him because he was very clever, very quick on his feet. You had to be careful. You had to expect the unexpected as a defender. I was always expecting him to have an amazing game and I had to be on top of my game,” Campbell explained.

He was one of the kind, sure a legend in his era! I am glad to be part of his history, much respect to Benni. Wish him all the best with his coach career. Wish he shines as he did as a player.
