Santa Cruz At The Double!!!
Blackburn Rovers have brought Roque Santa Cruz's younger brother Julio Santa Cruz to Ewood Park to join him.
Julio (a striker like his older brother) is 18-years-old and has signed a three-year contract with Rovers after undergoing successful trials at the end of last season and during this summer. Julio is expected to be a part of the Reserve Team this season, with him very happy to be joining his brother at Ewood.
Julio Santa Cruz told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website: "I am very happy to be here at Blackburn, it will be an amazing adventure for me."
Roque Santa Cruz has confirmed that he WILL be staying with Rovers this season having been heavily linked with Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City. However, despite reports to the contrary the Paraguayan insists that he isn't staying because we have signed his younger brother.
Roque Said: "The fact that it has all come together now is nothing to do with me staying here.
"But to have family over here gives you a better feeling because you don't feel so far away from Paraguay."
Even IF signing Roque's brother has made him stay I'm happy enough to see this!!!
