Tugay Could Play On Until He's 40!

Tugay Could Play On Until He's 40!

Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes has already hinted that he would like to offer Tugay a new deal, now Tugay himself has said he hopes talks will take place in January.

The former Turkish International who is looking to extend his stay at Ewood Park until the end of his career said:

"Ideally I would like to finish my career with Blackburn.

"I've played with only three clubs and have been very happy here. I hope things will be resolved in January.

"I think if you can look after your body you can go on until you are 40, why not?

"I'd love to score a goal like I did against Basel when I am that age.

"It might be easier for me to play on than for Teddy Sheringham because I am a midfield player."

The 36-year-old's current deal expires at the end of the season and I for one will be amazed if he isn't turning out for Rovers again for next season at least.

Tugay has said that he wants to end his career with Rovers and from what he has said he certainly has no intention of calling it a day just yet so the sooner he gets tied down to a new contract the better.

I stick by my recent comments why not offer him a two to three-year deal with coaching responsibilities also. He has a lot to offer so if he can't perform as much on the pitch as he once used to why not benefit from his tactical knowledge and awareness off it! Provided of course this is something he would want.

I hope we can still see Tugay at Ewood Park when he is 40-years-old (Hughes recently said himself he thinks he can) and why not!

If he feels comfortable with coaching, then i can't think of anyone i'd rather have on side. The man is a footballing genius, and most sides don't see anyone like Tugs in decades. I for one think we'll see a lot more of the old man in the coming seasons.
