Blackburn Releases Etuhu
The Blackburn Rovers have released Dickson Etuhu. The Nigerian’s contract was actually a couple of years away from being expired, but, he himself also wanted to leave which paved the way for the termination of the contract.
Etuhu had signed for the Rovers at the start of the 2012-13 Season after leaving Fulham. He had been brought to the Ewood Park with big expectations, but, he couldn’t live up to it. He was hit by quite a few injures during his tenure which limited his no. of appearances to 24 only in two seasons.
Considering Etuhu’s age, his fitness could not have been expected to improve drastically in the future. So, the Rovers management decided to let him go.
Blackburn yesterday released a statement confirming the exit of Etuhu. That statement was, “We want to thank Etuhu for the effort that he has put in for us in the last couple of seasons. It was a pleasure having him. We wish that he achieves a lot of success in the remainder of his career.”
Etuhu is not the only player who had been put on sale by Blackburn. There were a few other names as well whom the Rovers wanted to get rid of when the last season finished. Those names were Alex Marrow, DJ Campbell and David Goodwillie.
One out of the above mentioned guys i.e. Goodwillie has now been sold, but, the Rovers are yet to find the buyers for Campbell and Marrow.
The Blackburn boss, Gary Bowyer, is quite determined to get his squad right for the upcoming season. He has been doing a lot of transfer business in the last few weeks. Apart from selling players, he has bought a couple of good ones too.
The Blackburn fans would be hoping that the new squad that Bowyer is forming brings glory to the club next season.
