Is Kean at the centre of a Rao tug of war?
Steve Kean could be in the middle of a tug of war over his future as Rovers manager with a leading British newspaper suggesting that the Rao family are split over the course they should take.
On one side you have the brothers Balaji and Venkatesh Rao who are after a more exprienced head to avoid a repeat of last season's problems.
And on the other side there is Anuradha Desai who is firmly behind Kean's attempts to lead a new era at Rovers.
The Sunday People is reporting - 'Steve Kean is at the centre of a family row between Blackburn`s owners.
Anuradha Desai, chairwoman of the Venky`s Group, is backing the Scot to remain in charge after leading Rovers to Premier League safety on the final day of the season.
But her brothers, Balaji and Venkatesh Rao, are believed to be less convinced about Kean.
The Blackburn co-owners are thought to want a more experienced manager at Ewood Park.'
We have of course heard this before so shouldn't take it as gospel what is being reported but what is the old saying...
No smoke without fire?
