Matt Jansen Leaves Rovers
Sam Allardyce has ended any hope of Matt Jansen making a shock return with Blackburn Rovers after telling Matt that Rovers can't afford to carry passengers during this season's relegation fight.
Big Sam has told the former Rovers striker that he has no future with the club.
Jansen has been training at Rovers since November in an attempt to resurrect his football career which has been in decline since he suffered life-threatening head injuries in a motorbike crash while on holiday in 2002 prior to the World Cup of Japorea.
He was bought in to train on a free, 'informal' basis by ex-Rovers boss Paul Ince. But Sam has crushed the dream.
The Rovers boss confirmed to a Press Conference - "Matt is not training with us anymore."
A sad day for true Rovers fans as Matt Jansen holds a place in all our hearts. I want to be the first to wish Matt all the best for the future and I leave him with this message -
You have been and will always be one of our own.
