Leon Best remaining coy on Blackburn Rovers future

This Is Lancashire: Leon Best remaining coy on Blackburn Rovers future Leon Best remaining coy on Blackburn Rovers future

LEON Best is remaining coy on his Blackburn Rovers future.

The striker is set to return to Rovers at the end of the season once his loan at Championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday runs out.

But he admits he is ‘loving’ being back at the Owls for a third loan spell.

Best said: “I love it here, it’s like a second home to me.

"It’s been easy for me to come here and train and play and just enjoy my football.

“It’s football and anything can happen but I’ve got two and a half years left on my contract with Blackburn.”

Best has scored three goals in eight games for Stuart Gray’s Owls after spending four months out of the first-team picture at Rovers.

The Republic of Ireland international said: “It was a frustrating time at Blackburn not playing and I thank Stuart for the chance.

“It was hard at first, getting back into it and playing games when you’re nowhere near fit.”

Don't worry Leon, you'll soon be back at Blackburn trousering 35 K a week from the coffers.

He won't go anywhere because there isn't another club in the country that will pay him what he is on at Ewood.

His attitude stinks, if things aren't going how he wants them to on and off the pitch he chucks his dummy out big time, not a team player.

2.5 years to go in his contract? Jesus now that is depressing, I thought it was 12 to 18 months, Now that is a real millstone round our necks with FFP looming dark on the horizon.

He will be gone at the end of this season, although I very much doubt we will get a fee for him. He is happy there (Sheff Wed) and if he comes back here he will only rot in the reserves. So if he wants to play football he has to go.

Bowyer and the people who make the financial decisions on transfers need to play hardball with him. I can see him demanding a payoff, and that mustn't happen. We've blown millions on this clown and I wouldn't pay him a penny more than we have to.

A possible way next season to encourage all our stubborn unwanted players to leave is to keep sending them out on loan. Only short loans mind say two or three months at a time. Just as they get settled they will be on the move to another club and eventually will get disheartened. This will also help keep our wage bill down.

Well he has gone on record to say how much he likes his current manager Stuart Grey and that is an obvious dig at GB who he doesn't seem to rate. I hope they can afford him but its doubtful they can hehas 2.5 yrs left on our big wages due to the clowns in charge allowing him to be signed but conversely Wednesday do seem to be doing very well since he arrived there.

get rid GB....and that would be another big earner with a bad attitude out of the way

but saying that...he (LB) did hint at the time remaining on his contract so it may cost us to get rid,,,,in that case...let him clean the changing rooms for 2 and a half years

Exactly, we have players who want to play for the team, so we don't want players like him who put a shift in when they want and just sulk all the time! He either goes without a pay-off or polishes boots! If he's that bothered about his 2.5yr contract then he can be the worlds best paid toilet caretaker, or something of that nature....

Its called a contract. Your club in its wisdom gave him that contract, reported to be in the region of £35,000 a week.

You therefore still owe him £4.55million over the remainder of his contract.

The same applies to Dickson Etuhu.

So in these two "players" alone you have yet to pay out £9.1million in wages. Is it any wonder you'd prefer to "opt out" of Financial Fair Play.

Time to pay up you mugs!

If its that bad, sacrifice your contracted Salary and leave... I'm sure Bowyer would let you go if it wasn't for the fear of having to to pay you 4+ Million.
