Santa Missing As Rovers Return To Training
The majority of the Blackburn Rovers players returned for Pre-Season training today, but Roque Santa Cruz was a notable absentee!!!
However, FEAR NOT Santa was simply been given extra time off due to his summer schedule with Paraguay when he represented his country in their World Cup Qualifiers, including scoring in the Paraguayan win over Brazil, which leaves them topping their Qualification Group. The vast majority of the rest of the squad have returned, so we now know that the new season is NOT that far away at all!
Meanwhile there have been some rumours that Brad Friedel could go to Manchester City to link-up with Mark Hughes again, but they appear to have been silenced early on.
Rovers were recently linked with Chelsea Goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini, and a swap deal involving cash plus Paul Robinson from Tottenham Hotspur for David Bentley had been mooted, with it claimed that Friedel would be allowed to leave if this happened, but Paul Ince would be a FOOL to let Bradders go, especially as he is still one of the best Goalkeepers in the World!!!
