We must justify owners’ backing, says Blackburn Rovers boss
11:00am Saturday 18th August 2012 in Sport
STEVE Kean admits Blackburn Rovers must produce results this season to justify the summer investment made by owners Venky’s.
Despite calls from his fans for his removal as boss, Kean was backed with funds to strengthen his squad – bringing in the likes of Danny Murphy, Leon Best, Nuno Gomes, Dickson Etuhu and Colin Kazim-Richards.
The Scot says that he still has the support of the owners, insisting he does not feel that his position is under threat, but knows that Venky’s must be rewarded for their financial backing.
Kean said: “The owners deserve credit for investing so heavily because money is hard to come by because of the division we find ourselves in.
“We have to justify what they have done.
“There is no ‘I’ in team.
“It is us as a group and everyone at the football club has made massive steps in communicating from Ewood Park to the senior centre training.
“We feel that is very important. All the squad members, all the staff, all the directors, feel as though we have to deliver.”
