Kean: The fans are behind us
STEVE Kean believes his players are solely focusing on shocking Chelsea tomorrow after insisting the vast majority of Blackburn Rovers fans are behind the team and him.
The under fire Rovers boss has said the banning of flags and banners inside Ewood Park tomorrow had nothing to do with him as he concentrates on guiding his side out of the Premier League relegation zone.
A small section of home fans are planning on conducting a pre match protest against owners venky’s and a post match demonstration against Kean inside Ewood Park, but the Rovers boss insists they won’t let that distract from their priority.
He said: “I’ve just let the people at Ewood, the directors and safety officers make sure that it’s a safe environment for the owners and the players.
“The only thing I can say is we have always felt the vast majority of the fans are behind the team and we feel that the travelling fans have been excellent as well. It is always the majority we take the vibe from and most people in the ground seem to be getting behind the side and I am delighted about that.
“We have a good group of players who are professional enough to put these things out of our minds. We feel as though the majority of the fans are strongly behind the players and myself.
“We can’t let the small minority get to the stage where it’s annoying anybody. We want to do our talking on the pitch and we should have back to back wins.
“I’ve been looking for the last six or seven months for a new house and I’ve seen a few nice ones. We’ll see.”
