Blackburn manager Steve Kean thinks that January signing Mauro Formica will finally become a crowd pleaser for Rovers supporters this season after scoring his first goal for the club in a 2-1 friendly win against Accrington Stanley on Saturday.


Kean said that he thought it was good for him to start scoring so early into the season, and that his solid performances are only going to further endear him to the club's fans. "It was good for him to get on the score sheet," Kean said. "I thought it was a good performance.


"I think what the fans will see eventually is he is very good at picking up areas of the pitch where he can sense there is space.


"He can let the ball run across him and when he does get in the box he certainly has an eye for goal and the weight of his last pass is excellent."



Formica didn't feature in a single match after his £3.5 million move from Newell's Old Boys on transfer deadline day, but that's because Kean has been protecting the former Argentinean Under 17 international, and allowing him to adjust to the intensity of the Barclays Premier League.


"Last season was about getting used to the intensity of the training and the league because it is very, very different," he continued.


"You could see on Saturday he has the ability to find space and he can move the ball and change angle and he has a nose for goal. He is a very, very exciting player."
