No gamble on Yakubu – Kean

The Rovers boss seems to have been proven right, with the Nigerian

currently on a goal spree having hit the back of the net nine times

from just eight Premier League starts since his summer move from

Everton. Toffees manager David Moyes was left frustrated with the

29-year-old and eventually sent him on loan to Championship outfit

Leicester for the second half of last season. But Kean has had no

such problems with the player, who bagged all four goals in

Blackburn’s victory against Swansea at Ewood Park last weekend. He

told The Sun: “I had no doubts about signing him because when you

look at his record he has scored roughly a goal every two starts at

every club he’s been at – Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Everton.

“He has been punching above that here, which is great news for us.

“I always felt he would do well for us.”
