Blackburn manager Mark Hughes hopes Roque Santa Cruz will have the same kind of impact in his debut season in England as Benni McCarthy.

The Paraguay striker will have his first training session on Monday after sealing a reported £3.5million, four-year deal at Ewood Park.

"Hopefully he can settle in like Benni. He gives us something a little bit different up front," Hughes told Sky Sports News. "If he does half as well as Benni last season then we will all be thrilled."
