Williams: Intertoto Cup If Needed
Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams has confirmed that Rovers HAVE applied to take place in the Intertoto Cup again this summer if required.
Rovers managed to take part in the Intertoto Cup last summer despite finishing below both Reading and Portsmouth, as these two declined the opportunity. The UEFA Cup was eventually reached but we fell at the first hurdle to Larissa. However, despite feeling that it will not be needed at the end of the current season Williams has admitted that Rovers have put themselves forward again to take part in the European Qualifying Tournament if required.
Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph: "We have applied for the Intertoto Cup.
We did it last year and we've never regretted it.
"However, we would like to think we can qualify for the Uefa Cup as of right."
