We didn't want him anyway!

We didn't want him anyway!

Rovers have been snubbed by Raul after the Spaniard informed Schalke that he'd like to stay at the German club.

Rovers made a move for Raul today with Schalke informing all concerned they wanted something sorting quickly either way.

The way it turned out was not the way Rovers wanted/expected as Raul quickly informed the club via his agent that he wanted to stay in Germany.

Schalke general manager Horst Heldt told his club's official website - 'Both our coach, Ralf Rangnick,my colleague (board member) Peter Peters and I have always stressed that we do not want him to leave.'

Heldt clarified - 'Raul told us that he wants to stay with Schalke and asked us to turn Blackburn Roversdown. We have already done that.

'We are pleased that Raul wants to continue to contribute to our sporting success.'

Ah well, on we move.

Glad i missed all the hype today regarding this. Let's face facts, we didn't have much chance of pulling this one off, especially after yesterdays verdict questioning Kean's position as manager. I would love to see Raul but Nevermind at least we can concentrate on realistic targets now.

i don't understand this at all... i would have thought this would've been sounded out first; as in Salgado would've called Raul and suggestively asked would he be interested in a move to Rovers... if not, enough said, it was worth asking the question... but if he was, proceed and lodge a bid...
