Santa Cruz Loving His Rovers Move

Santa Cruz Loving His Rovers Move

Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz has said that his move to Ewood Park was the best thing that could have happened to his career.

After spending many years with German giants Bayern Munich he finally decided that it was time to move on last summer (admitting that he had stayed with the club for to long) and eventually chose Ewood Park as his new home, and this is something that he already regards England as, his home as he has settled in remarkably well. He could have gone elsewhere, but has NO regrets about joining us.

Santa Cruz told the Daily Mirror: "I had a chance to go to other places, but I had a good feeling talking with the manager and his ideas for the team.

"It was a very important choice for me and I am happy to come here.

"At Bayern the manager told me he wanted me to stay but for the bench, and because of my injuries I knew I had to keep playing so I could get back to my best.

"When I talked to the manager here, he said I'd have a chance and after a few months in England this feels like home.

"This is the best thing that could have happened to me as I stayed too long at Bayern
."

He has been a SUPERB signing for us, fourteen goals already including eight in his last five appearances is an incredible return and he will be looking to add to this further on Wednesday evening when we face Sunderland.

Easily our signing of the season and if he maintains his current form he could quite easily become our Player of the Season. He seems to be getting better and better all the time.

That's true, in recent weeks he looks devilishly dangerous in front of goal. I hope he can maintain this form throughout the season. It's also encouraging how happy he is. Benni, Bents and Roque have now all said just how happy they are at Rovers. Great news.

I was waiting for Roque to explode with the goals, he was unlucky at Bayern but im glad cos now we have him and he's showing his potential, the good thing about him is he spent ages at Bayern without complaining, this good be a good sign for Rovers in keeping him
