Premier League - Blackburn owners 'confused' after relegation

Wed, 23 May 16:04:00 2012

The future of Blackburn manager Steve Kean may not be decided until next month after co-owner Venkatesh Rao admitted everything was in "confusion".

Speculation about the Rovers boss has increased following the club's relegation from the Barclays Premier League, but despite the Scot travelling to India to meet executives of club owners Venky's, his situation remains unclear.

Kean was back at the club's Brockhall training ground yesterday and Rao - pictured left - said a decision on his future may not come for a while.

"Still everything is in confusion so I would say in the next month we will have a proper situation to talk about," he told Sky Sports News.

"In the next month let us see what happens. We are talking about various things, so many, about the manager, about the players, about staff, about the club.

"Nothing will be said right away so I would say kindly bear with us for some time and then the whole picture will be clear."

  7. John, dont really dislike the clarets in fact went to­ sheffield to watch them in the fa cup when MacDonald­ carried Alex Elder on his back half way down the pitch­ to score?? (think it was Elder?) and my father god­ bless him played the organ in the centre spot for many­ years so although we were both Rovers through and­ through we never let on in their and went to school­ with Barry Kilby new knew his family and his grandad­ Charlie was a real gem at the Stanley. So got history­ with your side and yes your probebly right Jack was a­ real gentleman and the first great benefactor to the­ premire league can only wish he was still around today­ and not the people who sold us out.There's always­ two sides to every story but to do what the family did­ to the club is and will always be remembered by the ­ supporters, Jack with fond and happy memories and his­ kids with distaste!!

  8. steve- ur so reasonable on the clarets site-calm down!-­ incidentally we have won more championships than you-­ As you were the first to benefit from 'big­ money' from uncle jack, you were the first to buy a­ title. The Venkys are just part of the same process- by­ all means bemoan their clear incompetence but at least­ aknowledge you benefitted from the infusion of­ non-football generated revenue. I must in all fairness­ add that uncle jack gave out of love, not to promote­ his own ego and BRFC were in his heart and not his­ celebrity CV.

  9. To all the supporters:- just take a proper look at the­ picture above and ask yourself why you continue to give­ these two idiots in Cheap Indian suits, pony tail and­ earings is beyond any reasonable comprehension. These­ two are supposed to represent whats good about the­ English Premire League?? they look like a couple of­ wide boys from the Tandoori Nights Peckham. !!!!

    What's the confusion, Keen is not a manager,­ Blackburn simply are not good enough to be in the­ Premiership, to honest they shouldn' t even be in­ the football league. If they had kept Big Sam that­ would be a different story. Please note Blackburn go­ down (Under Keen's management), West Ham (Under the­ management of Big Sam) go UP. For Blackburn, League­ One next, then League Two, then Non League. As long as­ the club is owned by Indian's it is a downward­ path, cos Indian's know NOTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL!!!

  16. When was the last time you heard the owner of a company­ say that his business was in confusion (even if it­ was). Sends a great message to his employees and­ customers (all of whom will be jumping ship). Not only­ do these people know nothing about football, it appears­ they have no business sense either. Rearing chickens to­ turn into fast food in India must be a doddle.
