'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kean backing audacious bid

Steve Kean has thrown his weight behind the Ronaldinho move stating that the move shows the ambition and the commitment to Rovers that Venkys have.

Although expressing doubts that the move will be completed, the Scottish Blackburn manager sees it as nothing but a positive for the club.

Kean spoke to Sky Sports and said - 'I know there has been contact made by the owners to representatives of Ronaldinho but I don't know how far down the line it is and whether it will actually happen,'

'If any Premier League manager was asked if they wanted to sign someone who has been World Player of the Year twice they would be interested.

'That is something that puts us on the map in terms of trying to bring players of that stature to the club.

'Everyone should look as it as a positive because if we can attract players - maybe not that individual if it doesn't happen - but players of that stature I think it has been a long time since we have been able to do that.'

Rovers are believed to have offered the 30-year-old Ronaldinho a tasty deal worth 20 million over three years.

'He is keen to play in the EPL (English Premier League) and I think that goes in our favour,' Desai told BBC Radio Lancashire.

'To be precise [it is] 7.6million euros (6.5million) for the first year and about 8.5million euros (7.2million) for the second and third years.'

Makes a bit of a change from 24 hours ago doesn't it?!

This is great for Rovers, even if he doesnt end up at Ewood - it shows our intent and hopefully the kind of players we are targeting. If we end up with Santa Cruz and Bently and perhaps through in Keane thats just what we need !!

If you got a chance to manage Ronaldinho within your first few months of management you wouldn't say no would you?!

He isnt exactly going to come out and say "I want to make my own signing and not the boards.. I want to make my own choices" = sack..

I hope we sign him but i just can't see it. Hope i'm wrong. As for Beckham I think it would be good for the club if he came but on the field i think i would rather have Bentley on the wing again instead.

kean is clearly not in charge of transfer and the owner doesn't seem to have done any due diligence of him on how he would fit in and whether he can still play

What a spineless**** Steve Kean is turning out to be. He stabbed Sam in the back and now is a yes man to the owners. This is a sad state of affairs when the board and their advisors are deciding who we should buy. Also I wouldn't like us to sign Ronaldinho. The guy is washed up, if he came to Rovers it would be for a pay day. He is a shadow of the player he was- drink, parties and a messed up private life have ruined him.
