Axe Would Now Like To Stay

Axe Would Now Like To Stay

Aaron Mokoena has no performed something of a u-turn and declared his allegiance to Rovers and insists he wants to stay - if offered a deal.

Aaron has been linked with Sheffield United and Stoke City recently admist speculation that he craves first team action.

However, Aaron has now stated he would like to stay - even though new contracts are not being discussed.

The Axe, speaking to Sky Sports said - 'I think at the moment it is a big difficult to talk about my future as at the end of the season I am at the end of my contract,' he told Sky Sports News.

'We are not in a position to hold talks as we don't know where we are going to end up, I would love to stay here, I am very committed.

'There has obviously been a lot of talks [in the press], but with me in my mind its Blackburn and that is where I see myself.'

Thoughts?

i don't see him saying, especially with the WC coming up in his country. He wants some regular football.

I dont think the axe has done anything or said anything wrong. Whether Sam wants to keep him for next season really depends on if we stay up, and how much funds we get. If, byt the 1% chance we go down, the axe will stay. If we stay up, i say its a toss of the coin. Sure, he aint the worlds most talented player, but he does give 100% everytime he does put on the Rovers Jersey. Compare it to one of my favourite players, Gamst Pedersen, who is one of the worlds most talented players, yet only puts in 10%, what would you prefer?
