Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has heaped praise on star man Bradley Dack after his first season in the Championship.

Prior to this season, the highest level Blackburn Rovers playmaker Bradley Dack had played at was League One – where he played 186 times for Rovers and former club Gillingham.

Last season, Dack proved that he was ready to test himself in Championship territory after his 18 goals and 11 assists helped fire Blackburn Rovers back into the Championship. And, in the 2018/19 season, the English man has brought that form into the second tier.

Dack has scored 18 goals this season, picking up 10 assists – making him the club’s top scorer and top assist provider.

Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has highlighted the impact of Dack this season, praising for his impact and work ethic on and off the pitch at Ewood Park.

“He’s had brilliant spells as well as spells where he’s gone a little off the boil as well,” Mowbray said to the Blackburn Rovers club website.
“But maybe that’s acceptable in his first season at this level as he tries to maintain those standards. He’s a brilliant kid, a joy to work with and wants to win every five-a-side match as well as every game.
“He hates being taken off, he loves to win and wants to play. We should enjoy him and encourage him as much as we can. He’s someone who scores the goals without playing as a striker, without that number 9 on his back.  He plays deep, he battles for the team and gets in the six-yard box to get goals.”
Dack’s form means he could be the subject of transfer interest in the upcoming summer transfer window. Premier League side and Champions League finalists Spurs have been linked with a move this year, along with West Ham and Crystal Palace.
However, Dack reaffirmed that he is more than happy at Ewood Park amid the interest and is not taking any interest in transfer rumours.
