Tony Mowbray who is the current manager for Blackburn Rovers made statements on Jacob Davenport. The manager stated that Jacob has to go a long way for returning to action as a first-team player for the club. He also said though he has resumed his training sessions, he needs to take a lot of effort to come back to the field.
Davenport was taken up recently as a prime midfielder by the club. Before, he used to play for Manchester City, the Premier League Champions. Davenport joined Blackburn Rovers last summer under a deal for four years at Ewood Park. The debut season was not at all fruitful for Jacob and it was quite frustrating for him. He also could not appear as a senior player till the time when Blackburn did a 2-2 draw on the final day against Swansea City for the league season because of his injury issues. The midfielder faced a lot of setbacks during the summer. He suffered injury for his ankle ligament in a pre-season behind closed doors game against Macclesfield Town.
