Ewood Park: Home of Blackburn Rovers(credit: Wikipedia
Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean insists defender Myles Anderson can be a success at Ewood Park.
Anderson’s arrival on a two-year contract has raised eyebrows because he is the son of football agent Jerome Anderson, an advisor to the club’s owners Venky’s.
But Kean believes the 20-year-old, who made just one substitute appearance for Aberdeen earlier this year, can go on to be a success like Manchester United defender Chris Smalling who was with Maidstone United just three years ago.
Kean told the Lancashire Telegraph: “We feel that Myles Anderson is a player with great potential as a late developer.
“He could become something of a Chris Smalling who came through late in football and Myles has done the same because of his schooling.
“We think he has a lot of potential but there was the opportunity for him to go to Scotland in January and we and he felt that would be a good experience for him.
“There was interest in him from a couple of Spanish clubs but he is our player and will be at our club full time in July.”
