Get ready to welcome back Benjani

Get ready to welcome back Benjani

Rovers look set to retain the services of Benjani after Steve Kean has admitted he wants the Zimbabwean at the club as a squad player.

Benjani did have a clause in his contract last season that meant he could activate a second season at Ewood Park automatically but he didn't play the required number of games.

But that seems not to have deterred our Scottish master and he wants more Benjani, even if his role could be limited.

'We are hopeful that we can put something together for Benjani' Kean told the Lancashire Telegraph.

'It will probably come on the FA website that he is a free transfer but we want him here. We haven't gone into detail with Benji but I said to him I would like to put something towards him and that will hopefully be done in the next couple of days.

'He has done really well for us. The type of lad he is, he is happy to have a role as an impact player as a substitute or if he is in good form and has a run in the team, then I think he has shown he is a guy defenders don't want to play against.

'He certainly had a strong end to the season.'

I personally don't mind Benji too much and he is good enough on his day, as long as he is just here as an impact sub....

Fine by me. He knows he's not going to start, so if he's happy playing from the bench here and there, and he doesn't cost too much, then okay.

Waste of a wage IMO, never played much when we really needed goals, and if we are to beleive Kean that he wants two new strikers then I expect the club to buy one's which would not be in danger of losing their places to players of Benjani's quality

not sure what he has done exactly to earn this. he kinda plays like jrob except weaker and not as good in holding off defenders...he rarely makes an impact as a sub...not the type of player that we should spend our money on

I don't mind too much if he stays but I don't see the point in keeping him as well as J Rob, Kalinic and possibly Rigters and Santa Cruz. I would rather freshen things up in the striker department and get rid of em all with the exception of Kalinic, and buy a big name goal scorer for next season.
