Retired footballer Benni McCarthy celebrated his birthday recently, and his compatriots back in South Africa made it a point to celebrate with him as well. What stood out the most, though, was his wife Stacey celebrating him.
In a post on Instagram, where she has almost 20k followers, she shared a picture of her man, with a cryptic caption in which she wished him a happy birthday and identified him as her love. Those words resonated with many South Africans, who popped in the comment section to celebrate him as well.
For some, it was an opportunity to illuminate the beauty of the relationship Stacey has with Benni McCarthy and to pray to have something just as beautiful in their turn. You can check out the post below.
Benni McCarthy may no longer be active on the pitch as a football, but he has already made quite an impact on the pitch before he finally retired. Today, years after retiring, he’s still an important voice in South African football – respected for his insightful thoughts as well as his years of service to club and country.
And when we say club, we mean not just within South Africa but internationally as well – think Ajax and Porto.
