Over the next few days we are told that Chelsea will step up their interest in Benni McCarthy.
Whilst the rumours did die down for a while they are back again now (I think we all knew they would return)... but the good news is that Rovers have moved to clarify their position on matter early...
Sky Sports has reported that Benni is a target of Mourinho but Hughes has stated that he is not for sale...
Speaking to the Sun, the worlds most ignorant manager stated....
'He is the kind of striker every coach wants and I am no exception.
'I've worked with him successfully in the past at Porto. I do like Benni.
'I'm not surprised about his achievements. He could score goals anywhere.
'If he stays injury free, he'll surpass his achievement of last season.
'I saw the possibility of us reuniting at Chelsea but he has a contract.
'I could tell that he wanted to play for me again because we had a wonderful time together.
'But Blackburn said he was not for sale and you have to respect that.'
I for one am glad we have made a point of stating our position early as this may kill off rumours. There will always be rumours for our players as we are a 'smaller club' (unlike Spurs we are told who are massive) but as long as we make progress we can keep these players... as we have a well run club and a superb manager.
I am confident we will have Benni with us come the start of next season.
