The former Portugal striker, who signed a two-year deal on his arrival last summer, is leaving Ewood Park by mutual consent.

Gomes, 36, scored four goals in 20 appearances for Rovers, and he told the club website: "Playing for this historic club has been an absolute pleasure. Despite only being here for a year, I have enjoyed my time here immensely.

"I want to say a big thank you to Gary Bowyer, the staff, the players and, most importantly, the fans for making me feel so welcome.

"I will look out for Blackburn's results and I hope they can achieve their goal of getting back into the Premier League."

Boss Bowyer said: "Nuno is a model professional, who has been a fantastic influence on the younger players at the club and has been a pleasure to work with.

"I fully understand that at this stage in his career he wants to play regular football, but unfortunately I can't give him those guarantees."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
