Ghanaian Annan Ready For Rovers Move

Ghanaian Annan Ready For Rovers Move

Blackburn Rovers target Anthony Annan is relishing the opportunity of playing in the Premier League for Rovers.

Annan, who is being compared to Claude Makelele and is an International team-mate of Michael Essien seem set to complete his move to Ewood Park from Norwegian club Start (he had been on loan with Stabaek) shortly having been training with the us. Rovers are understood to have held off the challenge of Atletico Madrid and AC Milan who were both interested. However, the lure of playing for Paul Ince is what is understood to have swayed him in favour of Ewood.

Annan told skysports.com: "I am very proud to have the opportunity to work with Paul Ince, everybody in world football knows what a great player he was and to have the opportunity to learn from him is fantastic, it can only help to make me a better player.

"Training has been great, the facilities at Blackburn are the best I have experienced and all of the players and coaching staff made me feel really welcome.

"The atmosphere was friendly and bubbly and I am here to work hard, learn and to impress."

SO MUCH FOR THE MUTINOUS ATMOSPHERE AT THE TRAINING GROUND THEN!!!

The 22-year-old feels that he is up to the challenge of playing in the Premier League and wants to hit the ground running, with his previous experience of European football and the tough physical nature standing him in good stead.

He added: "I have experience of European football, playing in the very tough and physical Norwegian league with Stabaek who are leading the championship just now.

"I have played in the African Nations Cup and World Cup qualifiers with the Ghana national team, playing alongside Essien and Muntari and that has helped me develop and although I am 22, I am mature and ready for the Premier League."


If Annan WANTS to play for Rovers (and Paul Ince!!!), and is as good as he is understood to be then that is all I need to know.

You never know with reports, but if Atletico Madrid and AC Milan have looked at him he must be good. Incey is looking for a defensive midfielder and Annan fits the bill.

Well, if he's even half as good as Maka, he'll be a pretty good signing.
