Salgado to end European adventure at Blackburn

Published Add your comment

Veteran defender Michel Salgado believes Blackburn will be the last European club of his illustrious career.

The former Real Madrid and Spain right-back has not ruled out a lucrative move further afield but plans to see out his playing days in Europe at Ewood Park.

"In Europe, yes. I think this is enough," Salgado, who signed a two-year deal with the Barclays Premier League club earlier this season, told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"It's a long career with competitive teams, 10 years with Real Madrid, and now I am really enjoying it with Blackburn.

"I think it's going to be my last in Europe, but I still think I have some exciting time ahead here. I wouldn't keep playing if I didn't believe that."

The 34-year-old has impressed while starting the last eight games for Rovers after a slow start to life in England, and the two-time Champions League winner reckons there is more to come.

"I am feeling really well," he said. "I am playing regularly, it's great and I think I am improving each week.

"I have settled into the Premier League and this is very important for me.

"It's a great end of my career and I am enjoying the Premier League and the culture of football in England, and I enjoy Blackburn."
