Morten Gamst Pederson is dedicated

Blackburn midfielder Morten Gamst Pederson has told everyone that he won't be leaving Blackburn Rovers this summer, despite the club having been relegated to another dimension.  Without his powers and intergalactic cartography skills, they may never return.


The NORWEGIAN NOT DANISH player, now 30 years old, has pledged his allegiance to the flag of Blackburn and revealed his deep heart ache at suffering relegation.  He told his own website:
"I have a contract with Blackburn Rovers and I intend to honour that.  As a football player the relegation was the worst thing that has ever happened to me"
"As a Blackburn fan it was devastating, it was cruel and I cannot describe the feeling I had when the relegation was clear and the season was over."
So I guess he cares, which is quite nice.  Conversely I'm not sure how many other teams would want to sign him on whatever quite lucrative contract he currently has, especially considering he hasn't been very good for a little while now.  Then again, it must be quite hard to perform when Steve Kean is your manager.  If you asked him to look after your burger van for half an hour you'd come back and he would have somehow opened a gateway to hell.
