Allardyce: Rovers Star Players STAY!
New Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce is understood to have taken the job on the guarantee that the star players at Ewood Park won't be sold in January.
Allardyce didn't seem that keen on the managers job at Ewood at first (with it even understood that he had ruled himself out) but was installed on Wednesday and that famous of sources "an insider" has revealed that Big Sam ONLY took the job as he was given assurances that the top players, in particular Roque Santa Cruz would be kept and not sold in January.
This insider told the Sun: "Sam is overjoyed to be back in football.
"But he wouldn't have taken the job if Blackburn planned to sell their best players.
"The board agreed and gave their assurance he keeps who he wants."
Other newspaper reports are saying that Santa Cruz WILL in actual fact be sold for £20 million in January, with this money then used as Big Sam's war chest to bring in reinforcements! Just goes to show that the national media don't really know what is going on!!!
