Back with the boss

3 July 2012

Latest signing Leon Best had no hesitation in renewing old acquaintances in signing for Blackburn Rovers.

The 25-year-old striker put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal with Rovers on Monday in a move that sees him link up with boss Steve Kean once more.

Best knows the Rovers manager very well having worked under him whilst at Coventry City, so as soon as he knew Kean was interested in taking him to Ewood Park he jumped at the opportunity.

"I'm delighted," Best told Rovers Player. "It is a good thing for me and a new start to my career coming here.

"I've been with Steve Kean before so I know what he's about, he's shown me a lot of loyalty and he's come in for me and I'm showing some back.

"I want to come here and work with him and the new players and hopefully we'll go straight back up.

"Blackburn is a massive club, a lot of big clubs have come into the Championship recently and gone back up so we've got to look at doing the same.

"We've a good manager, a good structure here, we've kept a lot of the good players here so now it is a matter of going back up and signing a few more."
