Kean admits he has not seen signings 'live'
BLACKBURN Rovers boss Steve Kean has admitted he had not seen his trio of deadline day signings play live before they arrived at Ewood Park.
Portuguese defender Nuno Henrique and midfielder Diogo Rosado, and Polish goalkeeper Grzegorz Sandomierski, were all signed last Friday, with Kean admitting he had little to do with their arrival.
Rovers have now signed six Portuguese players this summer and the Rovers boss confirmed they have mostly been brought in by global advisor Singh.
Kean said: "We would like to think they are in the club just now and we can take a real look at them.
"I have not seen them play live, Shebby was very excited about them coming and was telling me how good they were.
"So we have now got them in the club and we would like to think we can improve any player who comes to the club and also integrate them as quickly as possible.
"Shebby Singh has identified these players (The Portuguese players). These players have been identified by Shebby, he has been very excited about the technical ability of these players. You can’t have too many good players.
"We have got them at the club and I would like to work with them intensely over the next couple of weeks to try and integrate them as quickly as possible, because we know how difficult it is. We have seen it with some players coming from foreign countries before."
