Samba vents fury

BLACKBURN defender Christopher Samba has hit out at Indian owners Venky's by claiming they "don't understand" English football as he continues to push for a move.

Samba requested a transfer earlier this month, claiming he had "given 100per cent" to the club for five years and that "now is the right time for me to pursue a new challenge".

A move has so far failed to materialise, despite an offer from QPR and reported interest from Tottenham, and Samba has called on Venky's to grant him his desired move.

"They promised there was going to be a lot of investment in the team. It hasn't happened," he said.

"They don't understand football in this country and they don't realise how much I've given to Blackburn and that they have broken promises they have made. I share the frustration of the fans, who must have believed the owners. This is between me and the owners. It's personal."
