Blackburn owners 'don't understand' Premier League, says Samba

“I signed a new deal last January because Venky’s told me they had big plans. It hasn’t happened.”

BLACKBURN ROVERS DEFENDER Chris Samba has lashed out at the club’s owners, as he continues to push for a transfer.

Ewood Park chiefs Venkys have not delivered on grand plans which prompted the Congo centre half to sign an Ewood Park deal last season, he says.

Samba – linked with moves to Spurs and QPR recently – requested a transfer earlier this month, claiming he had ‘given 100%’ to the club for five years.

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.

“They don’t understand football in this country and they don’t realise how much I’ve given to Blackburn and that they have broken promises they have made. I stayed because I believed them but they weren’t honest with me and now I know I made the wrong decision.

“I share the frustration of the fans who must have believed the owners too.”
