Kean asks for time at Rovers

Blackburn boss Steve Kean has pleaded with the club’s fans to give him time and back the side, despite the northern club’s poor start to the 2011-12 season.

Rovers have lost all three of their Premier League games this term, two of which were at home, and some of the Lancashire outfit’s fans have asked for the Scottish manager’s head.

Despite this, Kean has remained upbeat and feels the Ewood Park team will get out of danger.

“It doesn’t make me feel bad at all. I have a great relationship with the owners. I can understand the fans’ frustration that we don’t have points on the board right now, but if you speak with the fans and the way we are playing, I don’t think we could have done too much more,” he told Sky Sports News.

“I think there are a minority of the fans that are frustrated and we are sharing that frustration that we haven’t got points. But the way we are playing, with the squad that we have got, I think it’s a stronger squad than we had last year.”

When asked is he had a message for the disgruntled Rovers fans, Kean asked to be judged at the end of the transfer window, rather than after only three games.

“Bear with us. We have said judge us at the end of the transfer window because during the window we didn’t get players in as quickly as we wanted. I think we have got a stronger squad than we had last year, and I’m sure most of the fans would agree,” he concluded.

Blackburn travel to take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday, and will know that a defeat will pile more pressure on the manager and the players.
