Hughes: Grass Not Always Greener

Hughes: Grass Not Always Greener

Blackburn Rovers fans have long since accepted that Lucas Neill will leave Ewood Park but it now appears Mark Hughes is also finally admitting defeat but has fired a warning.

As we have ALL often said in our comments here on Vital Blackburn "the grass is not always greener on the other side" and Neill may well find this out to his cost? Hughes has issued the following warning to Neill (basically saying words to that effect), citing Craig Bellamy's move to Liverpool as an example. Hughes said:

I'm not saying I don't wish him the best as I, and most other fans will just want it sorted. I stand by my thoughts that Neill will most likely find the grass isn't greener though.
