Ewood Park boss plans to use Emirates method.
Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean insists he will copy Arsene Wenger’s method to develop his youth players, which boasts the next Steven Gerrard in its ranks.
The Scot’s side is currently rock bottom of the Premier League and he is facing mounting pressure from fans to turn the team’s fortunes around.
Supporters are planning a demonstration against him before tomorrow’s match with Arsenal.
His rival in the early kick-off has also come under scrutiny recently but Kean is such a fan of Wenger that he will copy his philosophy at Ewood Park.
“Like Arsenal we are developing young players,” Kean told ESPN. “I think we are trying to buy and play younger players and develop their talents.
“Phil Jones, for example, did not have a squad number when I arrived and now he is worth £20 million. Then there’s also Junior Hoilett, Martin Olsson, Grant Hanley.
“Look at Jason Lowe who will play tomorrow (on Saturday). I have a 16-year-old who is like Steven Gerrard at his age.
“The thing we have to do is get in the top half of the table this year and invest in 24-28-year-olds that hold the young group together.”
