Le Saux disappointed to see Blackburn relegation

Former Blackburn Rovers defender Graeme Le Saux has stated his sadness at the plight of his former side, who were relegated to the Championship after a poor season at Ewood Park.



During Le Saux’s time at the club, he won the Premier League in the 1994/95 season alongside the likes of Alan Shearer, Chris Sutton and former Scottish international Colin Hendry. This season, Rovers have struggled with fan pressure and a lack of money for Steve Kean to invest in the club, which is a stark contrast to the millions former owner Jack Walker had in that title-winning campaign. Le Saux was upset by what happened to a club that was close to his heart, but is confident that they can make a return to the Premier League if the structure is improved.


Le Saux told A Different League: “I think the heart of the club is very strong and they’ve done it before, so I don’t see why they can’t come back up. Within football, if you don’t have the correct structure, it’s difficult for them. I think the owners underestimated slightly about how much presence they would need at Ewood Park and it’s important to get the structure right. I hope the core supporters, the ones who’ve followed the club from our title win through to now, stay with the club. Players need the backing and I hope there’s a renewed effort to get the club back where they belong.”


The 43 year old played with goalkeeper Tim Flowers in his time in Lancashire and Le Saux took time to praise the goalkeeping talents of Flowers. Le Saux also heaped praise on his former international teammate David Seaman, who he stated was a “commanding goalkeeper around the penalty area and very confident in his ability”.


Le Saux was talking at a Google+ Hangout at the UEFA Champions Festival in Munich.

No offence to Rovers supporters but rub it in to the Venky's and Steve Kean that big Sam just won promotion. JUSTICE!!! Venky's OUT! Kean Out!

You are suggesting that Steve Kean was in no way responsible. He is a disgrace and so far out of his depth its almost funny.
