Benni McCarthy may have to consider his options if he continues to struggle for regular first-team football at Blackburn. The South Africa striker said: "Obviously as a player you want to play, you always want to be in contention of playing because it becomes a habit.
"And when you are not playing you get frustrated and obviously you are going to look for opportunities elsewhere you know.
"Like I said, I will continue to work hard and if I get my chance I will try to take it with both hands and if I don't I will just continue working hard and at the end of the day, fate will decide whether I stay at Blackburn or leave.
"But at the moment I am just trying to really work hard by getting back to the way I know I can play and getting back to my old goal-scoring habits.
"Once that comes and obviously given the opportunity then I will try to do my best, but if not then hopefully that means the end of me at Blackburn, then so be it.
"It just depends on what the manager at the end of the day wants from me, if I am in his plans or if I am not in his plans. And over that future, I have no say."
