Over 6,000 fans attended an open Blackburn Rovers training session yesterday.
Midfielder Robbie Savage said: "If I was a kid I would have liked to have gone to see my heroes play or train.
"It was a bit strange having so many people watching us as nobody turns up at the training ground.
"You are a role model these days and the kids pick up on everything you do. So it is important that you work hard and are professional."
