Samba asks for a personal change

Samba asks for a personal change

Rovers defender Chris Samba has told French sporting publication L'Equipe that he wants a a change as he fears the club is not progressing at all.

The defender signed a new five year deal 12 months ago after he was told of Venky's dream to build the club up but in that time period the club has regressed and Samba has spoken out that now is the time for him to move on.

Spurs and QPR are rumoured to be interested in the big Congo man but judging by his latest comments a return to France and PSG would suit.

Samba told L'Equipe - 'Recently, mentally, it was difficult, I tried to keep my level of performance, but I feel it is time for me to change. The club does not change at all. I am resigned ... '

'I've always put the interests of the club before (his own). I invested a lot, I always tried to lead by example, but things have not gone as I had said. I hope people understand me'.

When asked about reported PSG interest Samba said - 'For now, there is nothing concrete. In any case, it's flattering, he says. The club has taken a different scale, it is not the PSG a few years ago. There's Leonardo, Ancelotti, I'm sure they will bring great players ' .

'We'll see if the interest is confirmed or not, but it would be nice for me to go home, further emphasizes the native of Créteil. The most important thing is to find an ambitious club. I would like something else ... '

But yes it is of course the fans fault that the club is regressing... ;)

Yeah you can't blame him for wanting out. He's stayed in the past and said he will see how we progress. We have gone backwards rapidly under Venky's so he would be sticking by his word. Also at first I read this as 'Samba asks for a personnel change' which really got me excited...then I realised what it really said :(!.

Without radical change I don't see your club beating the drop this season... that either means a total shift in Venky's approach or a change of ownership and with it a change of management. It's almost like they want to see the club run into the ground. Very strange. Samba, I hope we see you at Spurs in the next couple of days.

oh, and as far as your poll goes, in all fairness, you need more than just Samba and I fear with Venky's holding the purse strings you ain't going to get it... not unless it's chicken you're after any how.

I can't believe why he has been with us for this long. What a wasted football career...

If he does want out as things stand I really can't blame him...

No offence Cape Town Spurs but if he has a choice between PSG, who may actually meet our valuation and will likely pay him double what you will or Spurs...PSG win that every time. They have more money that most Prem teams now and are looking good to win Ligue 1, they are a team on a meteoric rise. Add to that he was born in France...

Oh Please! Samba you are the captain start acting like it. We have been letting in goals and losing games - get your thumb out of your **** and get the players motivated to beat Fulham and get us out of relegation. All public comments about wanting to leave should be kept silent otherwise you are in breach of contract and I hope we sue you for every penny we have ever paid you. It is one thing to blame the manager and owners but when you are on the pitch I expect to see 100% so get over yourself and get playing.

When he has gone, i would love him to lift the lid on Rovers. Hopefully starting by saying how god awful kean is as a manager and then moving onto blasting the owners.
