Kean sings Formica's praises

Kean sings Formica's praises

Steve Kean has backed last season's missing man to be next season's main man with a full pre-season behind him.

Mauro Formica, Rovers Argentine international, has been pretty much invisible since his move to Rovers from Newell's Old Boys back in January when he was labelled as 'one for the future'.

But despite his non appearances Steve Kean is backing his boy to be all guns blazing come Premier League kick off time in August.

Kean told the Lancashire Telegraph - "Last season was about getting used to the intensity of the training and the league because it is very, very different.

"You could see on Saturday he has the ability to find space and he can move the ball and change angle and he has a nose for goal. He is a very, very exciting player.

"It was nice for Gato (apparently this his nickname) to get a goal, I think what the fans will see eventually is he is very good at picking up areas of the pitch where he can sense there is space.

"He can let the ball run across him and when he does get in the box he certainly has an eye for goal and the weight of his last pass is excellent. It was good for him to get on the score sheet. I thought it was a good performance."

It would be a massive bonus if he could make an impact this upcoming season. He has the talent but does he have the toughness?

A bit of positive news. I also can't wait to see em in proper premier league action with a pre-season under their belts.

I don't want to sound negative but I can't believe anything Kean says - he can be positive about everything - doesn't mean he's right! However, as always I will support the lads and hope they play well.

He should be like a new signing for us without a doubt. He should fit in well playing in behind a proven goalscorer we desperately need.

Steve Kean couldn't lie straight in bed, he lies like a cheap watch, like FN1 I don't trust this clown or Venkys at all. It is all talk with these punters; and most of that talk is pure BS. I hope with every fibre in my body that I am wrong, but I cannot see it, this lot are going to drag us down the pan

Good, positive stuff, this. It's only a start, but it's a step in the right direction. Go Gato!
