Player Profile: Sergio Peter

Full Name: Sergio Peter
Date of Birth: 12th October 1986, Ludwigshafen
Nationality: German
Position: Midfielder
Squad Number: 31
Internationals: Capped at under-21 level for Germany
Previous Clubs: Cercle Brugge (Belgium) (loan from Rovers)

Sergio Peter is one of the brightest talents to emerge from the Blackburn Rovers academy in recent years; and what's more he made an immediate impact!

The left sided midfielder was instrumental in the Rovers youth sides progress to the 2002-2003 Youth Cup semi finals before unfortunately missing most of the 2003-2004 season through injury. Once Peter recovered he spent the remainder of the 2003-2004 season on loan with Rovers Belgian feeder club Cercle Brugge.

Having made such an impression with the Belgian team Mark Hughes brought him into his senior squad for the 2005-2006 season. His debut came in the third round of the FA Cup against Queens Park Rangers on 7th January 2006; with Peter making an immediate impact setting up all three goals in a 3-0 win therefore winning the Man of the Match award.

Sergio gained his first cap at under-21 level with Germany in the summer of 2006 and will be looking to press forward his credentials for more game time for both Rovers and Germany at under-21 and possibly senior level in the 2006-2007 season and beyond but with Morten Gamst Pedersen as competition it will be very hard for him.

It was no secret that I, in fact a lot of us would have liked to have seen more of Peter when MGP wasn't quite on form, hopefully as the season goes on we still might though? He's often shown glimpses of quality so with time on his side, providing he stays we'll benefit I'm sure.

Peter sure does have the talent, but with the form Gamst is in, i dont c him getting much of a run. Why not put him on the bench for a few games and give him the end 10,15 min just like derbs got
04/02/2007 23:44:00
He'll not start many if any games this season (unless MGP is being rested or god forbid... well you know, lets not tempt fate!) but if he does I'm sure he'll do a job. He'll get some more game time as the season progresses though I'm sure.

He has promise but i am reserving jusgement until he gets a string of games for us, to see what he is all about
05/02/2007 01:25:00
It's just getting the string of games isn't it, looked like he would earlier in the season, maybe even should have?

With the injuries to the midfield. he could still get a game or 2 this year yet!
05/02/2007 13:07:00
He can play right wing as well cant he... He does play in positions that are our strength at the moment. It'll be difficult for him but he does have talent and that always shows through.
05/02/2007 16:28:00
Agreed. As long as he doesnt get itchy feet then we will have seen more of him in 12-8 months time.
05/02/2007 16:59:00
Sergio Peter needs first team football now and it would be in his best interests to loan him out to a championship side.
nut all

or even to a lower rated Bundesliga side, like Bochum or Wolfsburg maybe? although that'll probably start the itchy feet off LOL
