'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Shah : This isn't a one horse race

Saurin Shah has insisted he is still very much in the race to be the new owner of Blackburn Rovers.

Saurin has signalled his intent by claiming he wishes to enter into a period of due diligence with the club and he doesn't mind that rival bidder Ahsan Ali Syed will be doing the same as of this morning.

Saurin believes that he can still be the best thing for Blackburn Rovers.

A source from inside Shah's camp, told the Lancashire Telegraph - "Mr Shah still believes his group can be the best thing for Blackburn. He watched Saturday's result from Mumbai and said to his family 'we are going to be a part of this'.

"Saurin does not expect to get any sort of exclusivity at this stage. Rothschilds have told them noone will, and he is willing now to enter into a period of open due diligence.

"He does not mind if Mr Syed's group are also allowed to enter due diligence. He expects that. He just wants to have a fair battle.

"If it turns out that Mr Syed's group are the best for Blackburn Rovers he will walk away in the knowledge the club will be a success. He just wants the best for the club now and believes that could be him."

Wait didn't the LET report that Mr. Syed has exclusivity over the next 4 weeks so Shah can't enter due diligence in this period or was that the LET making another huge factual blunder?

I just want it all to be over soon and we can have the situation settled and money can be available for investment into the club

Syed > Shah.. it doesnt take that many brains to see... Shah - Bid contains money from many family members and friends.. no proof he could fund major changes.. Syed - would be the 4th richest owner in the football league.. already said publically he wants to put 300 million into the club.. and said much more promising things than shah..

I'm in for Shah, he seems like the best thing, don't like Syed, too much money. The fit is better with Shah.....cheers

Id rather have Syed especially if this gets resolved prior to the end of the transfer window!

Syed has made Shah look very small don't you think? Although I suppose all the figures related to Syed are lighting up our eyes we haven't really heard what kind of figures Shah would provide. Looks like Syed it will be though, i'm all for it, as long as we don't start buying in idiots like Ballotelli like Citeh have.
