Venky's come out fighting

Venky's come out fighting

Far from being dismayed by recent criticism it seems that the sting of rumour mongering has bought the Rao family out fighting.

Rovers co-owner Venkatesh Rao has today set the record straight with regards to Steve Kean and the clubs finances.

In short, Steve Kean is being backed as boss of Blackburn Rovers and the claims that Rovers haven't got any money are complete rubbish.

Venkatesh tackled the Kean issue first...

Co-owner Venkatesh Rao told Sky Sports News: 'We have been very happy with him. We were in relegation trouble, but we came out of it. That doesn't help the rumours, but I want to reassure the fans that there is nothing like that happening. He is there for good.

'We are very positive about him. I don't know why these rumours come.'

Next up, it's the issue of problems with finance and the transfer kitty.

Rao has also refuted those rumours, adding: 'Money is not a problem, the problem is miscommunication and the rumours have led to this situation, for which I am very sorry.

'We want to run it as a company, very systematically. On spending, we are very much meticulous and we want to do it positively.'

Steve Kean himself has also been happily chipping in with some pearls of wisdom after a series of meeting's with the owners.

He said: 'I had a meeting with some of the family last night and I've got another meeting today. We will be discussing people coming into the club.

'I have got a great relationship with the owners and we are trying to get more people coming to the club and prevent anybody from leaving - it's as simple as that.'

That's that then.

The news may not be popular but this is one of the best statements in terms of clarity I have heard from the Raos.

Can we believe it, though? I don't think the fans know what to believe any more. Actions speak louder than words and all that stuff.

another set of owners coming to a club and promising massive amounts of money then claiming they want to run it like a business, which more or less translates to, 'sell to buy'

Blah blah blah, Steve Kean is great, we will challenge for europe, we have money to spend, we know what we are doing blah blah blah How long can they keep coming out with the same garbage and failing to deliver. All smoke and mirrors with these clowns.

I would also add that for an international company to BS that all the problems are down to communication problems suggests they are liars or incompetents, particularly since they have been using this excuse since they took over

They should've come out with this a little sooner but it's been said now so it's now time to deliver on it. We know we need a decent Chief Exec to handle these situations and hopefully we'll have one before the start of the season. Woulda been nice to get an update on Mongongu, Pavone, Honda etc or the "sizeable" bids status.

If you believe that you will belive anything, Rovers are on tour trying to market the club, They will say anything to be welcomed into asia, This is another PR stunt with no substance. Do not be fooled, This is not what is reality behind the scenes, be vet aware and cautius or it may be too late to have a voice

Fine words, fine words. Now DO something. Back Kean. Enable him to spend money. Get some players in.
