Samba tears into Rovers owners

Brought to you by William Hill


Blackburn defender Christopher Samba has hit out at Indian owners Venky's, claiming they "don't understand" English football, as he continues to push for a move away from Ewood Park.

Samba requested a transfer earlier this month, claiming he had "given 100%" to the club for five years and that "now is the right time for me to pursue a new challenge". A move has so far failed to materialise, despite an offer from QPR and reported interest from Tottenham, and Samba has called on Venky's to grant him his desired move.

He told The Sun: "I signed a new deal last January because Venky's told me they had big plans. Names like Ronaldinho were mentioned and they promised there was going to be a lot of investment in the team. It hasn't happened."
