Kean carts out the standard Hoilett speech

Kean carts out the standard Hoilett speech

Rovers manager Steve Kean has again reiterated his desire to keep hold of Junior Hoilett, 12 months after declaring that it was nailed on he'd sign a new deal.

Hoilett will be free to talk to other clubs in due course and although Rovers will be due compensation under terms of law it is likely the figure that they receive will not reach his current market value.

The rather shiny headed one has however acknowledged (sort of) that there is interest and not just from in the UK.

The Rovers boss rather hopelessly told Sky Sports News - 'I don't think it is going to be just clubs in this country.

'I'm told that there is interest from abroad. I can understand why because he has had some great performances, not only this season, but the past couple of seasons.

'We'll make a last-ditch effort to put something in front of him. You never know.'

'We'll make a last-ditch effort to put something in front of him. You never know.' Oh we know, and we've known the outcome all season.

"Yes Kean we do know and have done for the last 12 months. Tosser." Best comment of the day so far! It is mind boggling that what Venky's are planning to do matched with what Kean thinks are the plans shows very little semblance whatsoever!

Hoilett has given notice on his lease on his house... The famous "1%" chance of him staying.

This is what Kean said 12 months back. Steve Keans comments 23rd May 2011 Co-owners the Rao brothers were in the Molineux stands to watch their side coast to survival and, after a difficult introduction to life in the Premier League, Kean believes the club will now only move upwards. He said: “This is a massive moment for the club. If we had slipped into the wrong place, and gone down it would have been horrific. “Obviously there would have been financial implications and the squad would have been decimated. “We hope we can keep the squad together, strengthen in areas where we know we need help. It is not replacing players it is giving them help. “We can look forward and really kick on. I am excited about the future. We do have lift off because this was important. “We have had a bumpy ride. There have been massive changes at the club over the last six months but we have come out the right end of that. We will be a better club and I will be a better manager. He really needs to go now.
