Venky's rally behind Kean

Venky's rally behind Kean

Looks like the newspapers have some explaining to do after Anurhada Desai released a statement this afternoon in full backing of under fire Rovers boss Steve Kean.

It has been widely speculated in the last few days since the 3-2 defeat to Fulham that Kean's days as Rovers boss were numbered but Desai has moved to quash such talk with a strong denial.

In an official statement Mrs Desai spoke on Rovers Official Website - 'I do not know the source of these rumours but I would like to clarify there is absolutely no truth in these reports.

'I would like to put on record that we have a contract with Steve Kean and he will continue in his present position with the club. There is no question of the manager being changed.'

surely there are some positives to be gained from this... a little stability, 2 weeks to work on the game and then its cruch time. truthfully, the two week break will be painful but might be just what we need... and with a strong statement like this, the players can be a bit more settled and get on with it

What we have to consider is that if Kean goes who will replace him - will they be any better - if someone comes in will they need time to change tactics etc and will that just unsettel everything - OR is changing things just what we need? If we fail against Blackpool then who knows what will happen.
