Kean: No issue over Rovers job
Steve Kean has reiterated he retains the full backing of Blackburn's owners.
Despite overseeing Rovers' relegation from the Barclays Premier League last season amid significant supporter unrest, Kean remains in position after a summer of change behind the scenes at Ewood Park. Former Preston chairman Derek Shaw was confirmed as the club's new managing director this week, while former press officer Paul Agnew moved from the post of general manager to operational director. One-time Malaysian defender and television pundit Shebby Singh is Rovers' new director of football but, despite the upheaval, Kean insists his position has never been under threat as he unveiled maiden summer signing, Danny Murphy. Asked whether he had to fight for his job during summer meetings with controversial Indian owners Venky's, the Scot said: "No. We had some great open conversations and I'm delighted that we're moving forward again. "I gave an assessment of where I felt last year there were a few things we could have done better. Obviously there were some games that could have gone our way and they didn't for whatever reason. We had as open a conversation as we always do - it's always the same format. That was carried on to another meeting in India and another meeting in Zurich and that brings us to where we are - in a positive position with a fantastic signing."
