Roque: I Am Settled And Happy Where I Am

Roque: I Am Settled And Happy Where I Am

Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz has ONCE AGAIN committed his future to the club.

Santa Cruz has spoken of his surprise at having such a superb debut season in England, as he is so used to having major injuries (which were a frequent occurrence with Bayern Munich), which often set him back, but as he hasn't had them here he has been able to flourish.

Santa Cruz told Sky Sports: "I am surprised I have scored that many goals - I have never played a whole season completely and I didn't expect it.

"Things have been good for me because I am getting support from my manager and supporters
."

His goal scoring exploits are CONSTANTLY seeing him linked with others clubs (including Manchester United) but he once again insisted that he is more than happy at Ewood Park and has NO desire to move on.

He added: "The team wants to become better and I can identify myself with that, and people who want to become better - that is how I think.

"I have three-years more contract, and I am settled and happy where I am and I think our team can become stronger, I am happy and so there is nothing to think of
."

Hopefully this will end all the rumours ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!

Getting really p***ed off with all this speculation and rovers players now. I can kind of understand it when it is speculation linking them to big clubs but when the players are being linked to clubs in and around us( Santa Cruz to Man City) then it starts to become a little insulting. Just because we haven't got a 50,000 seater stadium or we aren't packing out Ewood every week does not make us a small club or a feeder club for supposedly bigger clubs like City,Spurs or Newcastle.Which club outside the top three has won a premiership or has being run so successfully on such a small budget. Just pack the speculation in or at least start to show us some respect and link us to some of their top players when you are printing your lies. Phew. Feel better after that

We've consistantly finished above City and Newcastle over the last number of years so why would any of our players want to step down a level. They have a much greater chance of playing European football at Ewood Park than at a lot of the so called 'bigger clubs' so I agree, it is insulting and it just highlights the fact that the media continue to refuse to recognize the progress that's been made here under Sparky!

Great points made Del and Spinaker - why do these 'big' clubs think they have a right to take our players just because they have the money and big stadiums? If anything our club proves that the spurs, newcastles etc waste an incredible amount of money... maybe they should use that money to develop talent or put it into reduced ticket prices.

Agreed Wellsy! I don't think Bentley will go as Hughes wants to keep him. But it would be nice for him to state 'Iain't going anywhere!'
