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.”
