Blackburn Rovers skipper Ryan Nelsen has said that he expects Roque Santa Cruz to stay at Ewood Park so he isn't concerned with the recent (again!!!) rumours linking him to Manchester City.
Reports coming from his native Paraguay of an apparent radio interview in which Santa Cruz indicated a desire to join Man City have been denied by his agent (at least the wanting to join Man City!), with him saying they were taken out of context (which I could believe.) Rovers skipper Nelsen has again reiterated how he feels that Santa is happy at Ewood Park.
Nelsen told Sky Sports: "There is a lot of players that get rumours here and there.
"Obviously Roque is a fantastic guy and you want the best for Roque and that is a decision he will make.
"From Blackburn's side I think what the manager can give him, what the club can give him is something these other clubs can't give him. He is really enjoying his football I think.
"I suppose he has turned his career around in a way, where at Bayern Munich it probably wasn't going as well and now he has really kicked on again and he understands Blackburn has done very well for him in that time."
The Admiral (or God!) won't be getting on Santa's back trying to reassure him that staying with Rovers is the right thing to do as he doesn't believe that he needs to do this, as he feels that the Paraguayan International will do the right thing, which will be staying at Ewood as he is happy with Rovers and we offer him something that others might not (even if Man City, if they would be interested, might be able to offer a chance at the Title) and that is regular football.
He added: "Obviously there is going to be interest everywhere, there is going to be rumours, it just happens all the time.
"Roque is big and ugly enough to handle it himself really without me sitting down and talking to him.
"He has got to do what is best for him. He is a lovely guy and I know he will make the right decision whether I am talking in his ear, the gaffer is talking in his ear or the papers are making stuff up."
