Ronaldinho To Blackburn Rovers: Count Your Chickens
BLACKBURN Rovers are in the bidding for buck-toothed, mega-gifted, idle, footballing superstar Ronaldinho. To save us the trouble of making this news up, the chairman of Venky, the company that owns the club, confirms the story. Says Anuradha Desai, for it is he:
“He is keen to play in the EPL [English Premier League] and I think that goes in our favour.”
This is the man who told Blackburn fans:
“We don’t expect to be in the top five of the Premier League. We will be happy to be in the top 10-12.”
You might recall that the chicken magnates at Venkey wanted Diego Maradona to lead them to mid-table glory.
Maradona and Ronaldinho will join forces and together raise brand awareness for Venky and its chickens. It’s the bootiful game.
Only Maradona never came. But they did get Steve Kean.
Anyone still think Ronaldinho’s coming to Lancashire?
