Indian poultry company Venky’s ltd have hit out at reports saying the club is up for sale, insisting they have no desires to sell the Ewood Park club should they face relegation… The Indian poultry company has joined manager Steve Kean as the target for Rovers fans’ fury this season, with supporters regularly protesting against their ownership and the side languishing in the relegation zone with just two games remaining this season.
With Blackburn Rovers on the brink of relegation to the Championship, the fans have wasted no time in pointing the finger at both manager and owners alike.
The latest news coming from Ewood Park reports that club owners Venky’s ltd have enlisted the help of an investment bank in order to line up a new buyer for Rovers.
Despite reports saying a deal could be on the cards, club owner Vineeth Rao has assured the supporters that this is not the case.
“It is not true, none of that. We have no plans to sell Blackburn Rovers, none at all,” Rao told The Lancashire Evening Telegraph, as reported by goal.com.
“Even if the club got relegated, which is not in our thoughts, we are not planning to sell.”
Rovers currently sit second from bottom in the Premier League table and look certain to face relegation. Rovers’ supporters have endured a torrid season under manager Steve Kean and new owners Venky’s, regularly showing their dissatisfaction by protesting before home games.
The Indian poultry company took over at Ewood Park in November 2010, following the completion of a £23m takeover.
