No Rovers regret for Villanueva

Published Add your comment

Carlos Villanueva insists he does not regret his loan move to Blackburn, despite being told the club will not sign him on a permanent basis at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old Chile midfielder arrived at Ewood Park on a season-long loan from Audax Italiano last summer, but Rovers are not prepared to sign him for around US dollars eight million.

"I am not currently playing. I know they will not use the option to buy me. I've been told that since the moment the news came up," he told La Tercera newspaper. "Everything has been quite difficult to me. I thought I was doing my job well and reality changed suddenly from one day to the next."

He added: "Now, I am thinking positively and waiting for another opportunity.

"I do not regret coming to Blackburn Rovers. I had the chance to experience closely one of the most important leagues in the world. I will be able to tell my grandchildren that I played in England.

"I am happy for the opportunity I've had, to have been at the club. It's extraordinary."
