Blackburn owners tell fans to back the team

Blackburn owners Venky’s have urged the club’s fans to back the team, despite growing calls for Steve Kean to be sacked.

The Lancashire outfit are bottom of the league after gaining only one point from their opening four games, and an anti-Steve Kean lobby is preparing to protest outside Ewood Park on Saturday before the team’s game against Arsenal.

However, the clubs shareholders have belief the side can turn their bad fortune around, and have asked their supporters to believe in the players.

“We understand that there is sense of disappointment and anger among our fans at the recent performance of our team Blackburn Rovers, which was not up to the expectations of the fans. We fully understand your feelings and share your disappointment,” an official statement reads.

“At times like this, when the team is going through a bad patch, they need all the support and encouragement they can get from the fans to boost their morale and enable them to perform at their best. This is the time when the fans can make a difference by lending their full support and cheer the team more vigorously than ever, and, help the players to renew the confidence in themselves.

“On behalf of Venkys, we would like to reassure the fans that we are fully aware of our responsibilities towards the them, and the club and to football.

“We are fully committed to make sure that the team’s performance improves, and that the recent set backs do not stand in the way of regaining our clubs standing in the Premier League, and the admiration of our fans,” it concluded.

Blackburn face a tough test against an Arsenal side that played well in Europe against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, and a defeat will put real pressure on an already under-performing team.
