Abysmal City signing Roque Santa Cruz has returned from a five month loan deal at Blackburn Rovers where he maintained a form of consistency...
Mark Hughes' inexplicable £17,500,000 capture from Rovers in July 2009 has registered 8 league and cup starts for the Ewood Park outfit this year, equalising his 8 league and cup starts for City across the previous 17 months.
These two totals contribute to an overall pisspoor 78 competitive starts across 4 years for Blackburn and The Blues.
The affable Paraguayan striker has so far failed to add this year to the 4 goals he has scored for City which came at a toe curling cost of £4,375,000. And one of them came against Scunthorpe United.
Crocky took his perma-injured form back to Blackburn on loan having signed for City whilst rehabilitating from major knee surgery at Rovers.
He's not a chance of playing for City again and the statistics above allied to his time at Bayern Munich rack up 182 competitive starts in 12 years.
Enough to scare off any potential right minded suitor but not it seems Rovers boss Steve Kean:
'It was tough for Roque. He picked up a couple of knocks. But every day in training, he showed us how good he is. Now the loan period's up, we'll be in contact and see if he's available.'
