Samba claims ulterior motive

Samba claims ulterior motive

Chris Samba has told the world that he made the move to Russian side Anzhi for the level of ambition they displayed to him not for the big pay day that has inevitably fallen his way.

Samba moved late last week to the big spending Russians prior to their transfer deadline for a move that could tot up to £11 million.

But despite their comparatively small stature Samba is adamant he made the move to chase his ambitions.

Samba told the Sun newspaper - 'They may be a little club, but they have ambition.

'This is a team with a realistic chance to play at the highest level of European football. They have the ambition and the money.

'They bought me for £12m - plus Roberto Carlos, Yuri Zhirkov and Samuel Eto'o. There will be more big names coming, I know of two which will surprise people that we will sign in the summer. We'd like to do what Man City have done.'

'I don't want to have any regrets. I'm 27 and must look to make the most of my years.

'Of course I hope Rovers will remain in the Premier League.'

Not enough to actually help yourself though!

The problem for Samba is that surely he'll be in his 30's before Anzhi get up near the level of the likes of City surely?!

I'd probably have left the 'sinking ship' if I was in his position too.
