Tugay Signs On For One More Season

Tugay Signs On For One More Season

Tugay has signed a new one year deal at Ewood Park which will include a new coaching role as well. He turns 38 in the summer but is still one of the finest passers of this generation and a true Rovers great.

The 37-year-old midfielder has been a massive success at Blackburn since his £1.2 million move (what a bargain!) from Rangers back in the summer of 2001, yet his existing deal was set to expire this summer as it has the last few summers.

However, Rovers have handed Tugay a new one-year contract to remain at 'home' and he will also take on a coaching roles at the club which could further extend his stay beyond next summer which is news to delight the rovers faithful.

Keep the good news coming guys.

Brilliant news. 2 more years as a coach and we might even see a Turkish themed testimonial at Ewood! I'll get the Falafels.

...actually, what on earth else is big in Turkey apart from Falafels, Turkish Delight and Fighting?

I think this is great news and to add the coaching aspect is genius, the young midfielders at Rovers should now learn all they can from Tugay, I suppose this also includes the likes of Vogel, Dunn etc, cos u can always keep learning

I read somewhere that the plan was to promote him through the ranks of coaching. However, I think it will be difficult to keep him after his playing days are over, as he has expressed a desire to return back to Turkey. However, if I were a betting man, I'd put a cheeky couple of quid on Tug's becoming manager of Blackburn within the next 5 years

Great player but at 37 can he cope with another season? Balckburn need another midfielder why dont they try and get Sidwell or Darren Fletcher

Because neither of those are in the same League as Tugay my good man. He will be used sparingly but Dunn, Vogel, Reid, Axe and emo are capable centre mids. One more attacking minded midfielder and I reckon we;re good to go.

Blackburn Confirm Caddis Arrival

Caddis, who left Bury at the end of a short deal, was given his chance due to his previous with Blackburn boss Mowbray at Celtic. But the ex-Birmingham full back has secured a deal.

Samuel Signing Sealed

Blackburn have signed Reading forward Dominic Samuel, who once worked with Mowbray at Coventry - also loaned to Colchester, Dagenham and Gillingham, ending last season at Ipswich.

Just Saying, But What If....

Blackburn will do well under the boss. However, for arguments sake, if Rovers didn't secure an instant Championship return what would happen to Mowbray?

Caddis At The Double

Caddis has now spent the past three weeks with Blackburn, joining the club in Austria last week, and Mowbray, his boss at Celtic earlier in his career, is close to making his decision.
