In-demand Santa Cruz plays down Rovers exit

Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz has played down speculation he is seeking a move away from Ewood Park.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing the Paraguay international who scored 23 goals last season.

However, after spending the past month in his homeland, Santa Cruz revealed he is ready to return to England and continue his Blackburn career telling Paravision TV station: 'A lot of people said my transfer to a bigger club was about to happen, but I live in the present and I'm focused on Blackburn.'

He added: 'I'm happy for the good season that I had and the important goals that I scored.

'I am motivated by the other teams' interest, but if I am not transferred then I want to have the best possible season at Blackburn.'

Meanwhile, Paul Ince started his reign as a Premier League boss back at the club who gave him his first chance as a manager and picked up a comfortable 2-1 victory over Macclesfield with goals from Rovers duo David Dunn and substitute Paul Gallagher.
