Today, our new manager Steve Kean gave the players some reassuring information. Kean has been in India and met the new owners, and he has been told that no player is for sale and that there will come some new players in January and in June. Our goal for this season is a top ten position, and now we will do everything we can to make that happen. And therefore it is important that the whole club going in the same direction, that means everybody with their heart in Blackburn have to work together. It goes for everyone from stadium crew, staff, players and supporters. Blackburn Rovers are a warm family club in the Premier League where the core values means something, and it shall remain like that in the future too.

I have had some questions and concerns that I am unhappy and want leave the club. But let’s just remove any doubts right now. I play at Blackburn Rovers and therfore have absolutely no reason to be unhappy. If I wanted to leave the club I had done it in the summer, instead I signed a new contract and is very happy to be where I am. I’ve been here six and a half years, and has almost four years left on my current contract and that contract I fully respect. Morten Gamst Pedersen is a happy Rover!
