Allardyce Explains A Twist In The Warnock Tale
Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce has insisted left back and Aston Villa target Stephen Warnock was left out yesterday as he wasnt mentally ready for the game and he won't sell Stephen on the cheap.
An exclusive yesterday on VB gave you an insight that Warnock was a certain to leave but Sam's words in the press this morning show that maybe things aren't as developed as first imagined.
The Rovers boss revealed last seasons player of the season Warnock was left out the squad that unfortunately lost 2-1 against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday because he had 'struggled to focus on this game'.
Allardyce has not yet recieved a bid he considers good enough yet and has stood firm to state that whilst things are in the balance and Stephen could leave, nothing is done yet.
Allardyce speaking to Sky Sports said - 'He is at home because he struggled to focus on this game and didn't feel that mentally he was capable enough of giving his best, so we both took the decision to leave him back at Ewood.
'There have been no developments on the transfer front, but he didn't feel and I didn't feel that it was the right thing to do to play him.'
'We will wait and see what next week brings, but we haven't had anything near a bid we could consider to be enough, so he is still our player and I envisage that he still will be our player.'
