Sam Wins Over Board And Is Adding Salgado
There are numerous reports in Spain, England and in the Times that Blackburn Rovers have agreed a two-year contract with Michel Salgado, the ex-Real Madrid and Spain star who is 33 years old.
The board had been reluctant to part with the cash as they have been trying to trim the wage bill but Sam has made this deal to good to refuse.
Salgado and his agent are now expect back in England today to finalise the deal.
Sam seems to have worked his magic here as Salgado appears to have agreed to a massive reduction in his £60,000 a week wages.
With Salgado agreeing to this the deal now looks a certainty - Sam Allardyce 1 Blackburn board 0.
This could be up there with Jay Jay Okocha with an absolute move of genius as Salgado will add winning mentality and spirit to the dressing room as well as his more obvious talents.
