Blackburn boss Steve Kean has said he expects to be given funds in January in a bid to help move the club away from the foot of the Premier League table.

Rovers sit bottom of the table going into a Boxing Day fixture at Liverpool and Kean’s position has been speculated over for much of the season.

But Kean insisted he had held positive talks with owners Venky’s, adding: “We spoke about the transfer window and the need to get defenders in.

“It was a very positive conversation.”

After Blackburn’s 2-1 defeat by Bolton on 20 December, Kean’s position was described as “becoming untenable” by former Rovers player Kevin Gallagher, while many fans have continued to call for the manager to be replaced.

However Kean has suggested that if he can get in defensive reinforcements he can turn the club’s fortunes around.

“I told [the owners] I think we can get these players and let’s push on and get them in the early part of the window so we can have a good amount of bodies and good competition for places once the other lads get out of the treatment room.


Steve Kean has been getting a lot of support from his fellow managers who have expressed their disgust at the behavior of some of the Blackburn Rovers faithful towards the Ewood Park boss. Whilst clearly it’s not right to threaten physical violence towards the Scot or indeed level unacceptable verbal abuse his way, it is there right to boo their manager if they feel he is doing an inept job and no one can deny that is what he has done since he took over from Sam Allardyce just over a year ago.

His record is pretty shocking overall and two wins from 17 this term has left Blackburn Rovers bottom of the pile, so why are people shocked by the club’s fans anger towards Kean?

It will be interesting to see if indeed Steve Kean is in post come January, his next two games could be crucial to his hopes of remaining in post and those fixtures come away at Liverpool and at home to Man United. If the club loses both those games can the club’s owners, who are of course also very much to blame for the way the club is sliding rapidly downwards, really continue to back their embattled boss?
