Kean thinks he'll be a better man

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.'

He does have something akin to a clean slate now but if he doesn't hit the ground running next season then expect the pressure to build.

I agree Mikey, he has to have a good start as does just about any prem manager bar maybe Fergie or else the pressure is on immediately from the media. People look at the the table from the very first game nowadays. I just hope he can attract the right players to the club, I've already stated I think he deserves to have a chance to build his own team.

Whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger and all that. He took the job on in incredibly difficult circumstances and should get a crack at a pre-season and a Summer transfer window. But like Mikey says, if we don't get off to at least an okay start, the calls for him to go will start pretty quickly.

I certainly hope he will be, he couldn't do worse could he and we did improve towards the end of the season when it really mattered and the pressure was really on.
