Blackburn Confirm Tugay Departure


Recommended Posts

Veteran playmaker Tugay will leave Blackburn at the end of the season.

The former Galatasaray star, 38, who won 94 caps for Turkey, joined Rovers from Rangers for £1.3m in 2001.

Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce said: "We will say farewell at the end of the season and thank you very much for what you have done for Blackburn.

"Tugay has had a fantastic career, but the ever-increasing physical demands of the Premier League mean you cannot go on forever."

What a talent he was. I still can't believe how old he is though, turning 39 in August.

cue someone suggesting we should resign him

As a coach, perhaps :pipe:. There's many a youth who would benefit to get some tips off of Tugay.

He looks like he's 49!

Great player, who still has the ability to play in the Premiership. £1.3m, what a bargain Blackburn got there!
