Blackburn striker Roberts upset Tugay joining Man City

Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts is disappointed retiring teammate Tugay is set to pop up on the coaching staff at Manchester City.

Roberts said: "I've heard the rumours about Tugay going to Manchester City. It would be a shame if Tugay wasn't doing something in the game, but, at the same time, I think we might have missed a trick losing Tugay and letting him go to a rival.

"He's been a great player for Blackburn and the main thing is that football retains a man of his talents. If he can go on and get a job with City, it will be great for him. He has his eye on coaching so good luck to him but, speaking as a Blackburn player, I think we might have missed a trick.

"I'd have liked to have seen him stay on in some capacity. I think if you asked anyone at the club, they would have loved to have kept Tugay around the place. He was a special player and also a great guy. We'll definitely miss him."
