Syed speaks on takeover

Syed speaks on takeover

The Indian businessman trying buy Blackburn Rovers has been at the club today and has commented on the takeover,

Rather than listening to me rabbit on for a nice change sit back and listen to the man who could very well be the future owner of our club speak...

Syed, 36, told BBC Radio Lancashire: 'I am very keen to move very fast and buy this club at the earliest moment.

'I am aware that Big Sam has big ambitions for this transfer window and I would love to support his ambitions.'

'I have been presented with a lot of clubs, but Blackburn really came to my attention because it suits my investment philosophy,' he added.

'If you have seen my investments in the past they are always good assets who are undervalued and who have huge potential for a turnaround situation. I have been doing this for 14 years now and Blackburn fitted the bill.

'I am very excited, happy, I feel privileged, but I would not like to call myself as the owner of Blackburn, but as a fan of Blackburn, and I would love for all the fans to support me.

'I would ask the fans to please adopt me as a local. I am not here to make money, I have enough investments outside of the sporting entities to make money, I am taking Blackburn as a passion and I would like them to support me in my passion. This is an investment to fuel my passion.'

Syed is yet to meet Rovers boss Allardyce, who led the club to an opening day 1-0 win over Everton on Saturday, but admits he is a big fan of the former Bolton and Newcastle manager.

'I have not met Sam Allardyce, but I've read enough about him to really praise him,' said Syed. 'He's done a fantastic job with limited resources, and I'm sure with my liquidity and support I think he can do wonders.

'I want to move quickly so that we can do well in the transfer window.'

OK I am finding it hard not to get excited now...

really excited now. instead of bobbing our heads trying to stay afloat we might have a chance for something far greater now.

Although i don't want to get too excited (OOPS! Too late!!) I think this is going to be a sure thing he seems genuinly passionate about the club and is looking to the long term to turn it around and into a profitable bisinuss. He is happy with BS and the way the club is currently run which i think is fantastic news for all concerned!!
