Mokoena in limbo at Blackburn

Aaron Mokoena admits he is in limbo at Blackburn Rovers.

Already Mokoena has had a transfer request rejected and, while he was briefly back in favour at the expense of a fuming Robbie Savage, nothing has been resolved.

Mokoena says: "Robbie's in the same position. He wants to play. He doesn't understand why when he's not in the team. He gets upset.

"There was only one transfer request. They rejected it. Now it's about waiting to see what's going to happen. I emphasised that I need more games. If I can't get them with Blackburn, I would be better off leaving.

"My point was clear. I am captain of South Africa, I need to be playing. The manager said I should take it easy, that I would play and he gave me a couple of games. To be fair to him, he is in a difficult situation. We all want to play."

Chances are that admirers Fulham will be watching with the transfer window about to open. "Fulham? I think they were the last team I was booked against. Are they watching me? Well, it's always good to know that clubs like you. But I'm happy at Blackburn, as I said. Let's see what happens."
