Samba: Blackburn owners told me they'd sign Ronaldinho

Christopher Samba has blasted the owners of Blackburn Rovers.

Samba requested a transfer earlier this month, claiming he had "given 100 per cent" to the club for five years and that "now is the right time for me to pursue a new challenge".

He told The Sun: "I signed a new deal last January because Venky's told me they had big plans. Names like Ronaldinho were mentioned and they promised there was going to be a lot of investment in the team. It hasn't happened.

"They don't understand football in this country and they don't realise how much I've given to Blackburn and that they have broken promises they have made. I stayed because I believed them but they weren't honest with me and now I know I made the wrong decision.

"I share the frustration of the fans who must have believed the owners too."
