Allardyce: Blackburn will never do a Portsmouth

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce says the club's finances are not at risk under the current board.

Allardyce sympathised with Portsmouth, managed by Avram Grant, before admitting he was grateful for his own club's more pragmatic approach.

He said: "This is where we are fortunate in that we have people who are running the club very well and won't spend what they don't have.

"I am sure everyone at Portsmouth enjoyed the good times they had, like winning the FA Cup, but I am sure no one thought about the consequences that seem to have happened after.

"As a manager, of course I am frustrated at time by not getting the money I want to spend but that is the right thing to do because you can't put your club at risk by spending what you don't have."
