Benjani leaves Rovers
Benjani has left Blackburn Rovers after failing to agree new terms on a new contract at Ewood Park.
The news comes as something of a surprise as Benjani has been saying for weeks that he is on the cusp of sealing another year at Rovers after last season's debut season.
Even the club themselves were confident that the Zimbabwean was on board and has offered him fresh terms.
But it seems the split has happened as the player was not happy with the offer made to him and no resolution was forthcoming so a parting of ways has happened.
On reflection this probably works well for the boys in blue and white as Benjani was hardly prolific last season and would have only been a 4th/5th choice striker in the pecking order.
And to be fair when you are that far down the pecking order at Rovers that is not really much a testament to your ability ;)
Thanks Benjani for your efforts and more specifically for Liverpool at home in January.
