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.

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.
