Roque Santa Cruz has hailed the class of Blackburn Rovers teammate David Bentley.

"I have played with so many good players and won the Champions League at Bayern Munich but I can imagine David playing in the best teams in the world," said Roque Santa Cruz, whose two goals on Saturday were both set-up by Bentley.

"It is hard to say if Blackburn can keep him because, if the player wants to try something different with a bigger team, then it is very hard for him not to take it."
