Forget About It Whisky Nose

Forget About It Whisky Nose

Paul Ince has told Manchester United to forget about signing Roque Santa Cruz, he is staying with rovers if Ince has anything to say about it.

The champions of England are willing to pay £12million for the Paraguayan international, but new Blackburn Rovers boss and former Old Trafford star Ince has told Sir Alex Ferguson to go look elsewhere as he would like to keep him.

Ince , speaking to Sky Sports News said 'If he comes on asking about Santa Cruz then I'll just tell him he's not having him, I had a text off Sir Alex to say 'congratulations, well done', as I've had off numerous people. But I'm under no illusions, I'm the enemy now.'

In the same interview Ince said he wants to keep Dave Bentley, this however may prove tricky as Bentley has publicly declared his intention to move on this summer where as Roque has made no comment.

But if anyone can, the new man can.

Go on Ince, he has made the right move here by taking a firm stance straight away... not a man to be bullied is the new boss.

I don't understand where a figure of £12 million comes from. Surely if Bentley is supposedly worth £15 million, Roque is worth £20 million - not that I want him sold!

I'm telling you guys, unless Williams or Ince want him out, he is not leaving anywhere. The only way I see Roque leaving is if someone offers Blackburn a huge irrejeactable amount of money! (speacially City, where Sparky is)
