Steve Kean has declared that he'll be a better manager for keeping Blackburn Rovers in the Premier League and he can learn from the experience.
Kean has only been a manager for six months but has learned the hard way that football fans can be a cruel mistress, especially if you don't get off on the right foot.
But Rovers are still in the right division and the Scot feels he will be better in the long run for going through the last six months and coming out on top.
Kean told the Daily Record - 'I know I'll be a better man for the experience of keeping Blackburn up.'
'When you go on a run of matches without winning it's only natural you sit down and examine everything you're doing.
'How you cope with your problems is to simply work even harder on the training ground. Everything that's been good for us followed on from doing that.
'It's an amazing feeling to have kept the club in the best league in the world. Now my ambition is to buy the players who'll ensure we don't have to go through another Survival Sunday a year from now.
'Money matters play on your mind when you're down at the bottom, of course they do. If a team goes down to the Championship there's a percentage of wage deduction built into players' contracts.
'Relegation affects everything at a club. But now I'm thinking optimistically about getting us into the top half and bringing a trophy to Ewood Park.'
