Blackburn boss Allardyce bans BBC over Santa Cruz interview

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce banned the BBC AGAIN after yesterday's 3-0 victory over Stoke City.

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce banned the BBC AGAIN after yesterday's 3-0 victory over Stoke City.

The Mail on Sunday says Allardyce and his club refused to let Radio 5 Live ask him any questions after the win over Stoke as punishment for running an interview with striker Roque Santa Cruz in which the player appeared to express a desire to leave.

This came moments after Allardyce had chatted about the victory to Match of the Day in his first interview with any BBC outlet since an investigation programme into transfer dealings when he was at Bolton.

A BBC source said: "The whole thing was ridiculous. It seems as far as Allardyce is concerned, a leopard can't change its spots."
