Hughes: Vogel Understands The Game

Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes has again picked out Johann Vogel for praise after another fine performance against Portsmouth on Sunday.

Vogel took sometime to adapt to the Premier League (which, as previously said is understandable considering he hadn't played a competitive match for 10-months prior to arriving at Ewood Park last month) but has grown in strength and his last two performances have been outstanding. The Swiss International (or former International) has started to show the kind of form that will make his a STAR name for Rovers next season, with this being something that Hughes feels his undoubted quality will prove.

Hughes told the Lancashire Telegraph: "He understands the game.

"He's got good football intelligence; he knows what teams are trying to do when they are in possession; he blocks holes; he gets a foot in and breaks things up for us; and he's got great vision and angles to his passing as well, which we saw on many occasions.

"So it was a good performance by him, and by a number of our other players, during the second half
."

Next season was always likely to be the season that we would see the best of the 31-year-old but it is great to be seeing some signs of this already.

What was I saying dudes, you don't become a bad player overnight and a player with Vogel's undisputed ability was NEVER a bad player, Sparky wouldn't have signed him if he was. He is starting to show form, if he builds on this then I think there is every chance that he could be our Player of the Season next year!!!

I feel bit harsh took some time was one game really, great man for a free, and is looking stronger and stronger, with a pre season under his belt will be top.

Another bargain by Hughes - no wonder other clubs are now just waiting to see who we're interested in buying before they make moves on players.

He has always been a good player. It is excitin to think what he cud produce given a full pre season. Good work Saprky again.
