Blackburn boss has board backing

Blackburn boss has board backing

Blackburn manager Steve Kean remains confident that he can keep the club in the Premier League, and insists he has the full support of the club's owners, Venky's.

Kean said: "No, not at all. They are strong people. They are very much in this for the long run and they have backed me to the hilt.

"We'll get through it and we'll do what we did last year when we ended the season brilliantly to stay in the Premier League when we were everyone's favourites to go down.

"Our owners are very strong. I spoke with the owner first thing Saturday morning and she said that there were going to be people protesting and not to let it bother me and I won't."
