Kean won't rule out Roque return
Steve Kean hasn't ruled out the possibility of signing Roque Santa Cruz on a full time basis after his loan spell last season.
Cruz was, shall we say, some way off being a hit upon his return to his former club but this has not deterred our Steven who is still a fan of the Paraguayan.
'It was tough for Roque." Kean explained to BBC Radio Lancashire.
"He picked up a couple of knocks that niggled away at him. It was just difficult for him to get to full speed quickly enough."
Despite this, Kean has hailed the impact that Cruz had about the place in general and the off field benefits that came with his presence.
'Being around the place and showing his quality every day in training, he showed us how good he is'
"It was just difficult because he's been out so long that he wasn't at full speed quick enough to give us the impact on the pitch in the games that he played."
