Kean takes Zonz stance

Kean takes Zonz stance

Steve N'Zonzi could find himself in a tricky spot if the move he craves does not end up materialising.

Zonz has handed in a transfer request at the club following relegation and a spat with the manager at the back end of last season, but Rovers have insisted they want full value for the man who initially cost them £400,000 from French side Amiens.

But Kean has today explained that if there are no serious bidders for his services then he will be expected to compete for a place at the club and he could yet see the scenario that he will play next season at Ewood Park... if he makes a statement confirming his commitment.

Kean told the Lancashire Telegraph - 'At this stage it is disappointing, but you never know, there might be no bids that match our valuation and Steven might then see the type of signings we are making and might end up still being here if he withdraws his request and makes a statement he wants to play for the club.

The situation could occur if no-one is ready to meet or come close to Rovers heavy valuation of £10m for the beanpole boy.

Kean continued - 'If no one met the valuation then I would hope he would respect the fact he has a contract.

'I would hope he would want to get his head down and work towards playing football.

'He is employed to be a football player, not a football trainer and at this moment in time, he doesn't want to play for the club.

Getting messy?

Atleast we're getting firm, but its true, football players get away with far to much, he signed a contract and should honor it if a move doesnt come off, just cus hes a footballer doesnt mean the laws of a contract changed for him, this happen are to often in our day n age

I hate to agree with the cretin, but he's right. It's af footballer's prerogative to decide they want to stay or go,but they should respect the fact that they signed a contract. If they don't want to play then they shouldn't be paid any wages...simples. If a team put's a decent bid in i'm sure he will be sold in any case.

So how does that justify Kean having so many football players as football 'trainers' last season when we needed them on the pitch - nelsen and salgado spring to mind among many others!
