Venky's give Steve Kean the ultimate endorsement

Venky's give Steve Kean the ultimate endorsement

Venky's have handed Steve Kean the ultimate agreement by stating that they will NOT SACK him during the two and a half year contract that they plan to offer him.

Kean has been in the hot seat for less than a month but already has been tipped for big things by his bosses and praised for his positive attitude towards the club.

It seems that the much criticised Rao's are keen to generate a period of stability at the club.

Anuradha Desai, boss of the parent company whose subsidiary, Venky's London Ltd, bought Blackburn in a £43million deal in November, said: 'Steve Kean will be safe in his job for the duration of that contract, whatever happens.

'I guarantee that. Without stability you cannot have success, and this provides stability. It's the way we work.

And the Kean endorsements didn't end there with a second family member chipping in.

Venkatesh Rao added - 'We have been very impressed with Steve Kean, he works hard; he's energetic; he's open and honest; he's enthusiastic about improving himself and the club; he shares our vision.

'Our ideas match and the synergy matches. We think it's a win-win.

'It goes without saying that we will not sack Kean. I am a passionate believer that if someone has a positive attitude then they'll have a positive outcome. There are people working for us across India who have been with our company for three or four decades, since our father started the business. We put our faith in people and work together to succeed.'

That's a big promise to make at this early stage from Venky's!!!

I agree with them, stability and a positive mentality are the way forward.

never say never, and how many times have we heard them reversed their position.

This is a bit silly no? Nothing wrong with backing your man but saying he won't be sacked is going a bit far. Also stability is the way they work? So sacking Allardyce half way through a season and a month into their take over of the club is stability? Vital called it right when they said they need to hire a PR person cause they sure can't do it.

They really need a top PR they don't half come out with some crazy stuff.

Nice they are backing the new manager , but also foolish to make a statement like this. No-one can forsee how he will get on, and he needs to be backed on the transfer front. Lets see how he is getting on next January then if all good give him a better contract, however if we have gone backwards, how can they sack him?

don't see the problem- if times get a little rough, this will quiet the talk of sacking and therefore bring stability, but if things go appaulingly (and that doesn't seem likely), there is nothing stopping them from firing keane...

Maybe they see Kean as a sure fire bet? I don't understand it but if that is how they feel then fine... I must admit I am warming to him.

He must have had a blinding interview. Big Sam will have been a sour grape talking about how we need £200m to be a decent team and not have to lump the ball downfield every game. I have to give him credit for somebody who's never been a manager he's impressed me so far and the football is improving which is refreshing and positive.
