Blackburn Rovers Indian owners to grill manager Steve Kean

London: The Indian owners of English Premier League club Blackburn Rovers will be grilling manager Steve Kean, and demanding a major improvement in results fast.

The Rovers landed in Pune on a promotional tour leaving behind a series of problems.

Kean’s men slumped to a fifth defeat in seven league games at the weekend and hundreds of fans staged a protest to demand his resignation, according to reports.

Kean also was involved in a barroom fight with a Sky reporter while on a scouting mission in Munich last week.

The owners will be forced to take action if the club is not able to improve its position and will hold crunch talks with Kean in the next few days.

Company director Venkatesh Rao said: “I have spoken with Steve and we are working on our weak points. We are going to sit down over the next week and have a very big discussion over this. Believe me, myself, my sister, my brother, all of us, are going to sit and have long chat and come out with some plan of action.”

He said they will do whatever it takes to halt the slump and added: “We promise the fans we will deliver results by hook or by crook. I would ask to kindly bear with us for some time, because the conclusion will be good.”
