Roque Enquiry Rebuffed
If newspaper reports are to be believed today then Manchester City made an enquiry into the availability of Roque Santa Cruz.
Early reports suggest that Sven Goran Eriksson had enough front to ask Rovers if they would sell their star striker to his club - a European position chasing rival.
Alas, this approach was rebuffed out of hand but suggestions have been made that Rovers might find it hard to say no should a massive bid be made.
Frankly I`m astounded at the cheek of Citeh for trying this. It smacks of arrogance that they think they can buy anyone from their immediate rivals, just because they have copious amounts of money burning a hole in a Swede`s pocket.
Let`s hope his under-hand tactics that tarnished his England tenure aren`t deployed here. I personally cannot see this materialising at all because Rovers do not have to sell due to a strong financial situation.
