Grella can still play a part for Rovers

Grella can still play a part for Rovers

Big Sam feels that the doctors best mate Vince Grella can play a big part for Rovers, but has admitted that they would have benefited from Galatasaray's move for the Aussie.

Grella was on the verge of a move to Turkey but it fell through after personal terms etc were unable to be agreed upon.

Grella is now expected back at Ewood Park after the World Cup.

But Big Sam is happy to have Vinny on board but admits his injury record must pick up.

Allardyce spoke to the Lancashire Telegraph and said - "This Galatasaray thing would have suited both of us but if he stays with us hopefully he won`t have the same problems he has had over the last two seasons,"

"He has shown he can be a big player when he plays but unfortunately the glimpses we have seen have been over two seasons now.

'One season we could understand it was a difficult period of moving from Italy to the Premier League.

"Michel Salgado played for Real Madrid for 10 years and it took him until mid November to find out what it is all about.

'Vince was starting to do that and then another thigh muscle becomes another hamstring, becomes another calf.

"When we looked at the record unfortunately he had the lowest starts of our first team squad and that was the reason why we were listening to offers.

'We know what the player is capable of but we haven`t been able to keep him on the pitch as long as we wanted."

Covering all the bases Samuel???

I don't see him lasting, think we should cash in if another team comes in for him. some players are just injury prone and over the last few seasons we've had Reid, Dunny, Emo and Grella hogging the treatment room on a regular basis and they're all midfielders.
