Vieri Deal Not Completely Dead??

Christian Vieri was understood to have walked out on Blackburn Rovers after reportedly failing to turn up to take part our recent Pre-Season tour, however, that might not be true.

Sunday speculation saw it claimed that the 35-year-old failed to turn up for matches over the weekend. However, Sam Allardyce has said that Vieri wasn't ever going to feature in those recent matches as his fitness wasn't anywhere near the right levels, however, the Italian could still return to continue his trial??

Allardyce told the Lancashire Telegraph: "When we assessed Christian from the Austrian trip he was not in the right condition to consider games.

"We will weigh that up when we get back and if he wants to come and we feel it is right for the club then he could still join us for the last month.

"We will see what he wants to do and whether we think we can get him to the level to make a stab at it in the Premier League. If he can, then brilliant, if not then it was always a long shot.
"

If the former Italian International did however walk out on Rovers then Allardyce is just being polite and we'll not be seeing anything of Vieri again!! If things are as Big Sam says they were then we might not have heard the end of Vieri at Ewood Park after all??

I think this one is dead now. He may be keeping the door open but if he has walked out then I dont want him!

Why would we want to sign him?!?! He is coming across as a spoilt child...rite enough this could all be paper talk and there could be a legit reason why he left BUT it would have to be a GREAT reason.....I dont think we should be signing 36yr olds no matter how many times Big Sam has resurrected careers b4 im still not sure wot Vieri could offer us......

Having watched Rovers in the old second division, I'm a little nervous of relying too much on the old players coming to the end of their career - especially in the Premiership. Some were good and some were off the pace - but at Premiership level - we need players in their prime. If he can get fit enough to add something, fine but he can't live on past reputation. Very worried at suggestions of unreliability.
