Blackburn Rovers made it past Charlton, Swansea City and Stoke City before eventually being knocked out of the FA Cup by Liverpool. A solo goal from Philippe Coutinho was enough for Liverpool to book their spot in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
Even though Blackburn Rovers failed on advancing any further than the quarter-final rounds, it still was a fairly impressive campaign for the Championship League club as they managed to overcome clubs that are performing in the Premier League and this is the case of Stoke City and Swansea City.
In 2 legs Liverpool only managed to score once as Blackburn Rovers managed to hold their ground.
According to the head manager of Blackburn Rovers, these string of performances have been so impressive that he wouldn’t be surprised if he receives offers for his players during the approaching summer transfer window.
The head coach of Blackburn Rovers, Gary Bowyer said: “What the players have done is they’ve put themselves on a platform and shown that they can play in the Premier League. They’ve got to maintain that over the next six games and show the Premier League big boys. That’s obviously the nature of the game that we’re in; I’m not going to kid myself. It’s the nature of business. If you look at all the clubs now, everybody sells. Liverpool sold Luis Suarez in the summer.’’
Gary Bowyer already knows what it’s like to attract the attention of other clubs as he had to reject some bids that were launched from Hull City in the previous transfer window as Hull City attempted to sign Jhordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede but all the bids were rejected by Blackburn Rovers as they weren’t interested in selling those players.
