Grella bigs up the Basturk
Vince Grella has backed Yildiray Basturk to be one of the star players in Rovers fixture run in and impressed with what the Turk has shown so far.
Grella himself is back in contention for first team duty and Basturk is near full fitness so both are in contention for Bolton at home on Sunday.
But Grella has seen enough of the new boy to suggest he can have a tremendous impact.
Grella, speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph said - "Basturk is a senior pro who has got international experience and has played in the Bundesliga for 10 years.
"He`s been one of the main players in Turkey`s team for the past 10 years, so I don`t have to present Basturk to anyone.
"But I enjoy playing with him. He`s got great vision, great awareness and great passing.
"I think he could give us something new and something different in our formation.
"Can he be a star player for us? You took the words out of my mouth.
"I think he`s got everything to be a star player at Blackburn.
"He`s something different that we don`t have and I think the manager knows that.
"That`s why he signed him."
The players and staff are building him up a treat here!
