Blackburn Rovers' latest signing Roque Santa Cruz was presented to the large number that turned up at Ewood Park today, and he has said how excited he is to be here.
Around 300 fans turned out as Santa Cruz was presented to the fans (and of course the media!!!) for the first time since his £3.3 million move from Bayern Munich on Saturday.
The Paraguayan International is looking forward to getting his Rovers career underway, and has confessed that the time was right for him to leave Germany and try his hand in the Premiership.
Santa Cruz told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website:
"It was easy, Blackburn were serious in me from the beginning and they showed me that they were really interested to have me here.
"That is exactly what I wanted and why I wanted to move from Bayern.
"I'm very happy to be here and I don't think I'll miss anything from Bayern. With the people I have met here today I know that we are going to make a good team.
"It is a big thing for me to be here, in South America the Premier League is shown everywhere, it will give my family the opportunity to see me.
"I am very excited about it already, I've talked about it with friends like Owen (Hargreaves) and now I just want to work so that as soon as possible I'll be good to play.
"It is a big thing for me to be here with Blackburn and I will do my best."
