Kean won't rule out Roque return

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."

Welcome to your account registration Andy! ha ha! Is that right? We didn't win any games in which he played? I thought we won against WBA 2-0 and he played then?

We don't want santa back, he's simply not fit enough & with his constant injuries he wont get fit enough and he'll cost atleast 10mil by what city have stated in the past, Kean we want peformers not just on the training ground! Get Demba Ba and/or Ricky van Wolfswinkel, both good strikers who wont cost a bomb..

Forgot about WBA but that was his first game and only came on as a sub and still didnt do anything. Now with the rumour of Diouf coming we cant sign Santa Cruz too! If we do we will go down! Need a goal getter and Santa Cruz just isnt anymore.. In fact in his whole career he only scored double figures twice! And once was for his first club

We got the best years from Santa before he showed himself to be the mercenary that he is. These best years are behind him so unless Manchester City are giving him away I'd not bother paying to get him back.

Injury prone, much slower than he used to be, seems to have developed spoon feet, seems to have developed a spoon head, demands high wages. Nuff said on this one... Kean look somewhere else please!!

Phil Jones out, MB Diouf and Santa Cruz in? Is Kean looking to make Brian Kidd's transfer record (Ashley Ward / Jason McAteer / Keith Gillespie / Per Frandsen) look good?

He has had his chance to show if he has anything to give to the team and he hasn't come close at all, Send him back!
