New Rovers recruit Harry Chapman is desperate to reward Tony Mowbray for his "faith" and "trust" in him, after the 21-year-old penned a permanent deal at Rovers.
Chapman, who spent a large chunk of last season on loan at Ewood Park before injury cut short his season, will remain at the club for the next two-and-a-half years after putting pen-to-paper yesterday.
And discussing his relationship with the boss, a fellow Teessider, the former Middlesbrough man was thrilled to work under him again.
"The fact he’s brought me back shows that he’s got faith and trust in me," the pacy flanker told iFollow Rovers just moments after signing.
"I hope to repay him by putting in the performances on the pitch.
“He’s a great manager, probably the best I’ve worked under. I love his philosophy about football and the style of play.
“It suits me down to the ground and I love playing for him.
“Even though my spell with the club last season was short and sweet, everything he taught me has stuck with me. I tried to take it into my football back at Middlesbrough but it didn’t quite happen for me there.
“Now I’m back here I hope he can teach me more of what he knows."
