Blackburn Rovers defender Gael Givet has given admitted that if it was not for his family, he probably would have killed himself because of life in Lancashire.

The 31-year-old hasn't featured for the Championship side since December and has made it very clear to the club that he wants to leave in the summer, as he doesn't appear to have a future at the club.

The Frenchman took part in an interview back in his homeland, and admitted that if it wasn't for his wife and children, he would have hanged himself because he couldn't face living in Lancashire by himself.

"Luckily, I have my wife and two kids," he said.

"If left alone in Blackburn, I'd have already hanged myself."

When making the astonishing comment, Givet was believed to be laughing, however he then followed up by expressing his fury at not being picked at all by the club.

He added: "In any event, I'm done for here.

"I've only played one match plus nine minutes in four months!

"There have been approaches but the club's been asking three or four million euros for me.

"And they told me: "If you go out on loan, you'll have to renounce your final year of contract".

"That's impossible! What if I get injured? 

"Mentally, relegation to the second tier has been very hard to live with - and, even worse, I'm not even playing."

After giving the interview, it's expected that Givet will face a very uncomfortable last few months in England and could face being frozen out completely by the club.
