Big Sam Rubbishes Samba Link And Praises Di Santo

Big Sam Rubbishes Samba Link And Praises Di Santo

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce has dismissed claims that Tottenham are set to bid big for Rovers defender Chris Samba.

The Sun ran a frankly useless story that Chris Samba was going to be subject to a £10 million bid from Harry Redknapp.

But Allardyce has been quick of the mark today in exposing that particular link as a load of rubbish.

'It is an absolute nonsense,' Allardyce told Sky Sports News.

'As far as I am concerned there has been no contact with Tottenham - and I know that as I spoke to Harry Redknapp.'

In other news, Franco Di Santo has been given some praise as he made his debut last night in the dominated by Rovers, but ultimately fruitless 0-0 draw with Hibernian at Ewood Park.

Franco looked very promising in the 60 minutes he was on the pitch and showed touches of class that a certain in no way lying, sulky Paraguayan would of showed back in the days when he wasn't a back stabber.

Big Sam thinks that there is plenty more to come.

Sam continued - 'He is a young man that is frustrated at not playing too much first-team football last season,'

'He is looking forward to playing here - he is a talented player, if not a little inexperienced, with lots of ability and I think there is a lot to come from him, but I think we will take it easy with him.

'He will play a lot of games, but I don't think he will play every game but when he gets used to it I think he will be a force for us.'

The lads got skills, bit more experience and play him with our full strength midfield & woohoo roll on the goals. I really hope Samba isnt going anywhere.

On the Samba issue it's another prime example of the newspapers taking what they see as the thinnest of threads and writing what they want based on NOTHING!!

And the Di Santo one I'm personally REALLY looking forward to seeing him play regularly as Chelsea fans speak very highly of him. If the striker does well at Ewood so will we so everyone involved (that has something riding on this) wins, everyone's a winner baby!!

I love the quote: 'As far as I am concerned there has been no contact with Tottenham - and I know that as I spoke to Harry Redknapp.'
