Difficult to leave Fulham admits Blackburn Rovers signing Murphy

Blackburn Rovers signing Danny Murphy has conceded it was difficult to leave Fulham and the Premier League.

Murphy has admitted the decision to turn his back on a top-flight career that has taken in spells with Liverpool, Charlton and Tottenham was difficult to stomach at first.

He explained: "Initially I was a little bit reluctant in that respect, but the more I thought about it, the more influence I thought I could have at this level.

“I don’t think I have anything to prove in my career. I think my ego was initially what I worried about, but playing in the Championship is another challenge for me and one I’m really looking forward to.”
