Salgado in dark over Rovers treatment
Former Spain international Michel Salgado has revealed he never received an explanation for being frozen out at Blackburn last season.
The 36-year-old full-back is out of contract this summer and will leave Ewood Park after a two-year stay, but last featured in December's Barclays Premier League defeat to Sunderland. Reports suggested Salgado was dropped due to a clause in his contract that meant a further appearance would trigger a new deal, but the former Real Madrid star claims he is still none the wiser as to why he suddenly fell foul of boss Steve Kean. "I'm still trying to find an explanation for the big change in December and it's not an easy one to get to the bottom of," he told the Lancashire Telegraph. "The problem is that if you try to find an explanation there is nobody inside the club that can explain anything. That's the most disappointing and frustrating thing. "It was really disappointing to end it like that because things were going okay for us when suddenly they changed everything. In the last six months I just couldn't stay. It was really upsetting not just for me but for the rest of the team and the fantastic fans. It was tough to see my friends there get relegated from the Premier League."
