Morten contract reaction from the horse's mouth

Morten contract reaction from the horse's mouth

Morten Gamst Pedersen has spoken of his pleasure at signing his brand new deal.

Pedersen has been touch and go for a while now as to whether he would sign up or leave for pastures new, but the deal has been sealed now leaving the future clear.

Morten has insisted Blackburn was always his first choice.

Pedersen, speaking to rovers.co.uk said - "Blackburn always was my first choice. We have a united team, great management and brilliant supporters.

"Also, there aren`t many footballers who get the opportunity to stay with one Premier League club for 10 years. I did and I want to honour that."

Big Sam is just pleased to have retained the services of Morten for longer, as to say there were doubts over his commitment would be an understatement.

Big Sam commented - "Pedersen is one of our most dedicated and professional players,'

"We`re glad to finally have a contract in place and look forward to the new season."

So all is right with the world again. Will the new deal by a boost or will complacency set in?

Typical players' talk, which should be translated as 'I searched for big clubs high and low, bit I couldn't find any willing to take me on at this time, and so, I have deigned to stay for a while yet.Praise me.'

Have to agree with you there. And he sure did take his bloody time!!! So it was kinda obvious he was looking to leave if he got a better offer. But he didnt and im glad he is on the team still.

as long as he keeps playing the way he has. and lets be honest, if he fails, we can now sell him instead of letting him go for free. either way this new contract works

I think some of these comments have been a bit harsh - MGP has improved this season, his set pieces have led to goals; and he's playing with more passion. If he was looking for a new club he would want to go to one that would be better - it's the same with any job = why would you leave to go to a worse job?? A better job didn't come along and he wanted to stay!

Also, MGP wasn't beating a drum to leave or to get better pay or anything like that - he didn't moan and stamp his feet or miss training sessions like some other players this season - and most of the people who we sold haven't excelled away from Ewood either.
