Blackburn Rovers defender Christopher Samba wants to leave the club following the sacking of Sam Allardyce last week.
Allardyce was surprisingly axed last week, with first-team coach Steve Kean taking charge on a caretaker basis, and the club’s new owners, Venky’s, have been criticised for making the decision.
And now Samba has confirmed he wants to follow the former Bolton and Newcastle United boss out of Ewood Park.
The Rovers captain told The Sun: “If this is the way the club’s going to be run from now on, I don’t want to be part of it and I want to leave.
“As captain it’s very difficult to say this but I’ve thought long and hard about it. Nobody in football understands the decision to sack Sam.
“We could have been relegated last year and Sam saved the club, so how can he be treated like this now?”
Samba added: “The players and fans need answers about the club’s future. Unless we commit to who the manager is, how can we attract big players in January?”
