Chris Samba has reiterated his desire to leave Blackburn Rovers and has taken a pop at Venky's over promises that were made to him that haven't come to fruition.
In what tabloid newspapers would label as 'explosive' the interview he gave is designed to force his move and he has stated he can't remain at the club as he can't guarantee he'll give 100% for the team ever again.
Samba told the Sun newspaper - 'Blackburn need players who are 100% for the club — and I'm not.
'The only way to solve this is for them to let me go. It will be very difficult for me to play for this team again.
'I'm at the end of the road here. I'm not going to change so, for their good and mine, they must sell me now.'
'When a couple don't get on they get a divorce — and that's what me and Blackburn have to do.'
'I signed a new deal last January because Venky's told me they had big plans.
'Names like Ronaldinho were mentioned and they promised there was going to be a lot of investment in the team. It hasn't happened.
'They don't understand football in this country and they don't realise how much I've given to Blackburn and that they have broken promises they have made.
'I stayed because I believed them but they weren't honest with me and now I know I made the wrong decision.
'I share the frustration of the fans who must have believed the owners too.'
Samba also believes the figure being asked to buy his services are unreasonable with £15 million being mooted as the figure needed to tempt the club into selling.
'I'm not a £15million player,' he said.
'Blackburn only signed me for £400,000 from Hertha Berlin and if they get £7million now then that's very good business.
'I've got nothing against the manager (Steve Kean). It's not like he's been given £100million to spend, he's trying to do the best he can with what he has.
'This is between me and the owners. It's personal.'
