Pedersen considering Rovers future?
Vital Blackburn member govtpros has brought some new slightly worrying news to my attention involving Morten Gamst Pedersen... Is the Norwegian also considering his Rovers future?
Govtpros submitted me this (the text in bold.)
Just in from soccervoice.
Morten Gamst Pedersen is keen on a move away from Blackburn.
Yesterday he expressed in an interview with Norwegian TV2 that something could happen during the January transfer window.
Blackburn has been a fantastic place for the Norwegian international but a major club like Liverpool or Manchester United would be an option too good to turn down if they come in with an offer.
This information is indeed from a website called soccervoice, but how accurate it is I'm not so sure.
I tried looking into Norwegian channel TV2 and although obviously in Norwegian I couldn't see anything in text which had the name Morten Gamst Pedersen included. Hopefully this is merely everyday gossip, and indeed if such an interview was conducted it has been taken out of context.
It is likely that Pedersen could have made a comment about maybe wanting to further his career at some point, and understandably if a Manchester United or even a Liverpool did come in for him you could see why he may be interested, but this wouldn't happen yet would it?
Tottenham Hotspur had been rumoured to be interested in making move in January so maybe this is what the reference to something happening in January is, but surely he wouldn't leave Rovers for Tottenham? With all due respect to Spurs, who are a fine side this would not be a move in the kind of direction he would be looking to move in if a move away from Ewood to a much bigger club would be wanted.
As I say this may well be, in fact more than likely is just a rumour, pure gossip (I'm not saying that govtpros has started it at all, as he didn't as I looked up the site myself after he sent me his information) which following Lucas Neill's recent outburst may well have seen an innocent interview taken out of context looking to add yet more fuel to the fire of unsettled Rovers players... which isn't the case, with the obvious exception of Neill...
