Blackburn Rovers Press Officer Denies Being Offered Chairman Role

Ewood Park communications chief is baffled by rumours.

Blackburn Rovers press officer has denied reports he is to become the club’s new chairman but is open to any role he is offered.

The 53-year-old has revealed he has not held any meeting with Venky’s. the Indian owners of the Lancashire side.

Former chairman John Williams’ departed in February after 14 years in the role after disagreements with the role agent Jerome Anderson was playing in the club.

Agnew is travelling to India to meet them soon but is going to discuss better relations with the board and the fans, not about a promotion to chairman.

“I’m in the dark over where that came from,” he told the Lancashire Telegraph, regarding the vacant position which arose upon John Williams’ departure in February.

“It seemed to come from a number of different sources, but nothing has ever been mentioned directly to me.

“But if there is to be a restructuring of the club or whatever, I’m willing to discuss any role they may have in mind.

“Anything that is in the best interests of Blackburn Rovers, I will do.”

“I have championed the cause for making sure the communications are bob on because I think communication with the fans is critical,” he added.

“I’m just keen that we get the messages across. There has been a lot of uncertainty, because perhaps the messages haven’t been properly understood.

“I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to go over there and meet them, and try to bring a full understanding of what their vision for the club is.”
