Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce has accused Roque Santa Cruz of being underhanded in the way in which he has tried to engineer a move away from Ewood Park.
Roque has gone to the media time and time again in a bid to get a move to a 'big club' and not once has anyone spoke out... until now.
Big Sam, speaking to Radio Lancashire said - 'He has become a little bit underhand. These remarks sneak out where we cannot control the situation,'
'It has happened too many times for it not to be him and it's disappointing.'
Roque was a smash hit in his first season but this season has been injury plagued and stop start to say the least.
A knee injury has kept him on the sidelines for the last two months and Allardyce, quite rightly, has decided enough is enough and told the player to keep focused on his recovery.
Big Sam, continued - 'Roque should concentrate on getting himself fit and playing his football for Blackburn Rovers,'
'It shouldn't be about where his future lies because without his fitness and without his capabilities of producing more than he did last season then he will struggle to get the sort of move he's looking for.'
'I've always got on with him extremely well, but fans will always take a dim view on players who openly say that they want to leave. I understand that, but we'll just have to wait and see,'
'The time here has been unfortunate for him and for me that he hasn't been fitter because he is a terrific player.'
Well said Sam and what he says he is 100% true, he might be a nice guy (Roque) on the outside but he has been very shifty in trying to get what he wanted.
The Ewood faithful will take a dim view of this.
