Rovers' Ambition Attracting Players
Blackburn Rovers are a VERY ambitious club, the players that Mark Hughes has attracted to Ewood Park (and been able to keep!) proves just that, and Hughes believes it is this ambition that is attracting them.
Word of mouth is a powerful tool in any walk of life, and Hughes feel this is no different in football, especially where Rovers are concerned. He is adamant that the likes of Benni McCarthy, and most recent world-class acquisition Roque Santa Cruz were attracted to Ewood (as others will be in the future) due to the ambition the club are showing, which is spreading throughout the footballing community.
Sparky told Sky Sports (these quotes were from an article on Sky Sports anyway):
"We should not underestimate the football grapevine.
"People are beginning to understand what we are trying to do here. Word gets around and that gives you a foot in the door.
"Obviously the deal has to be right for the individual and the club. I am sure Roque will enjoy the day-to-day working here."
