Chelsea striker Franco Di Santo has taken a parting shot at Blackburn Rovers after he spent a season on loan here at Ewood Park.
Di Santo was a hit at first in East Lancashire, but after a poor run of not scoring was left floundering on the bench/in the reserves.
At first, Di Santo was full of praise for Rovers - even at one time suggesting he would like them to beat Chelsea.
But after his spell of being out of the first team, he has reversed like a Ford Focus and complained about Rovers being a mid-table club and about being a lone striker.
Franco, speaking to an Argentine press conference said - "People at Chelsea were angered by the fact that I wasn`t playing regularly."
"When you do not have a chance to score when playing at the front of a one-man attack, and you fight and fight, it is difficult for any striker."
"We can not compare Blackburn, which is just a mid-table club, to a Chelsea side that has the best players in the world."
Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I think this is just sour grapes from Di Santo.
We cannot compare Chelsea to ourselves favourably in terms of league position but we can compare them as follows -
* Blackburn knock Chelsea out of League Cup on penalties after 3-3 draw.
* Blackburn draw 1-1 with Chelsea in the league at Ewood Park after a teenage rookie marks Drogba out of the game.
Goodbye Franco, please remember to have a little dignity.
