Roque Tells Rovers He Wants Out (Again)

Roque Tells Rovers He Wants Out (Again)

Roque Santa Cruz may have made his last appearance in a Blackburn Rovers shirt as he has told the club he wants out before the end of the summer transfer window.

The Paraguay striker is currently injured but has taken time out to hobble into the head office at Ewood Park to tell John Williams and Sam Allardyce he wants to leave.

'I have already told them (Blackburn) and they know that before the transfer window closes I would like to continue my career at a bigger, more ambitious team,' he told Radio Nanduti in Paraguay.

'Even though I haven't heard anything, I haven't changed my mind.

'I think it will be very difficult for me to play again this season because of the recovery. Our last league match is on May 24 and I also need a couple of days for my knee to physically recover.

'The recovery time is between four and six weeks and I will not hurry. The most important thing is to play without any problems.

'I will wait for my knee to be perfect, no matter how long it takes.'

Expect a story stating that he was misquoted any time soon.

Like all players that leave Blackburn (save Shearer and Given) he will not prosper. If he goes to Liverpool (papers say they are interested), he'll be behind Torres. I suppose the only place he will go and play (if fit) is Man City, as Hughes knows his strengths, etc...However, I echo Mikey's views. Why say this when he is injured. He won't/can't help us stay up, as he can't/won't play. The only thing comments like this does is dent morale. Where's the team spirit, Santa!?!
