Kean Signs New Deal
Steve Kean has signed a new deal as manager until 2013.
Kean who was previously only contracted until the end of the season, has got his first longterm contract as a manager.
Kean expressed his delight on The Rovers official website:
'I am delighted to commit my future to Rovers at the start of what I see as a massively exciting new era for the club.
'The owners have shown great faith in me and I will do all I can to repay them.
'This is a great opportunity for me and I intend to grasp it with both hands.'
Anuradha Desai said:
'We have great confidence in Steve, someone who impresses us with his work ethic, enthusiasm, positivity and football philosophy,'
'We feel that the playing squad is in very safe and capable hands and we look forward to working with him.
'Stability is very important to us and this contract is further evidence of our desire to achieve such stability at the club.'
I know Kean has mixed support in the Rovers ranks, but I guess now he is going nowhere.
Time to back him and his style and give him time to put his stamp on the team I guess!
