Rovers won't rush Salgado

25 Aug 2009 - 10:49:58

Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce will not rush Michel Salgado into the hurly-burly of English football too quickly.

The 33-year-old former Real Madrid star moved to Ewood Park last week but Allardyce is wary of forcing the 53-times capped Spain international to make his Rovers debut before he is ready.

The former Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United boss told his club's official website: "Salgado won't be ready for a few weeks yet.

"There's no point in trying to thrust him in unless we're absolutely desperate.

"As great and as experienced a player as he is, it's a major thing to cope with the Premier League when you get here from abroad, and we have to get him physically conditioned to cope with that."
