Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams has warned want away midfielder David Bentley that WE will decide where his future lies, and not him even though he wants out.
Bentley went public on Sunday, telling Sky Sports of his desire to leave Ewood Park this summer but Williams has warned him that until a new manager is in place he WON'T be going anywhere, and if the new manager wants to keep him then as long as he is under contract (which he is) he will be kept at Ewood!!!
Williams told Sky Sports: "Our position is quite clear - this is not something we will even discuss until the new manager is in place.
"Then, once the new man is appointed, he will get exactly the same level of support that we gave Mark Hughes in regard to all player related dealings.
"Right now though, my mind is one hundred per cent focused on getting a new manager."
However, Bent' going public with his desire to leave Rovers isn't anything new to Williams as he has revealed that he (and former manager Mark Hughes) was already aware of this, as he was told of his wishes before the end of last season.
Williams added: "David had a meeting with Mark Hughes and I before the end of last season, in which he told us he wanted to test himself at a higher level, so it's not news to us.
"At the time, Mark told David it would be in his best interests and the club's if he stayed for another year, and we gave Mark our full support."
IF any deal to see him leave Rovers is best for Rovers then he will be sold, if not then as he has a contract he will be kept, but do we want him kept if he is unhappy and might disrupt the dressing room?!?! If he does go then it will be interesting to see where he ends up, as if this is Manchester City then the respect that he is losing already from many will be lost EVEN more as would this really be a move of the proportions he has spoken about???
