Santa Cruz believes he's played last Blackburn game

Roque Santa Cruz believes he's played his last game for Blackburn Rovers.

"I have already told them and they know that before the transfer window closes I would like to continue my career at a bigger, more ambitious team," Santa Cruz told Radio Nanduti.

"Even though I haven't heard anything, I haven't changed my mind. I think it will be very difficult for me to play again this season because of the recovery.

"Our last league match is on May 24 and I also need a couple of days for my knee to physically recover. Now, it is up to the knee. The recovery time is between four and six weeks and I will not hurry.

"The most important thing is to play without any problems. I will wait for my knee to be perfect, no matter how long it takes."
