The Chelsea striker Franco Di Santo has admitted that he wants Blackburn to beat Chelsea this weekend, and would ideally like to stay at Ewood Park for the forseeable future.
The Argentinian youngster has built up a great relationship with Big Sam, who has told him that he will do his utmost to try and persuade Chelsea to make the loan move into a permanent deal.
“It is good for me being at Blackburn. I am very happy to be here because the manager has given me the opportunity to play,” he said. “That has given me the opportunity to improve and gain experience and I hope to get better and better over the next few games.
“Sam Allardyce is helping me to become a more complete player. I am very happy at Blackburn. I need to improve and gain experience. I need to play games and score goals. If I go back to Chelsea I will try my best but if I stay here I will continue my education.
“I hope to get back to Chelsea and play. If I go back and don’t play, it is less good for me. It depends on the situation. If I play for Chelsea, I will be happy because they were my first team in England and I always hoped to play in a top team. But if I stay here, I will be happy. I won’t have a problem.”
“I hope Blackburn win on Saturday,” he continued. “Now I play for them and want to do my best for them. When I go back to Chelsea, I will want the best for them. Now Blackburn are paying my wages so I want a Blackburn win. I will go to the game because I have a lot of friends at Chelsea and my contract is still with them. I want to go to watch.”
With Ancelotti saying that he is very keen on the young Italian striker Borini in the Chelsea reserve team, could this mean that he will allow Di Santo to stay at Blackburn?
