Kean to meet Blackburn fans

Steve Kean has stated that he will meet with disgruntled Blackburn Rovers fans in the near future, and has also admitted he has a list of players that he would like to bring to Ewood Park in January.

A 3-1 defeat to Stoke at the weekend saw the Lancashire club slip to the bottom of the Premier League, and the team’s fans are frustrated and worried about the side’s form.

A section of the club’s faithful have petitioned to have the Scottish coach removed from his post, and were further incensed when the manager was handed a new contract last week.

Kean understands the supporters’ concerns, and is willing to meet them to discuss the best way forward for the struggling club.

“I will always take direction from other people at the club more qualified than me to organise something like that,” the 44-year-old told Sky Sports.

“But if it is going to happen, then I would be available to do that. Possibly they might want access and want to know a little bit more about what is going on at Ewood.

“I think there has been a lot of suggestion that they would like to know a little bit more about the organisation and the running of the club.

“That is not my department, but I’m happy to talk on the football side,” he stated.

Rovers are in need of January reinforcements, and Kean has admitted that he has a wish-list of players that he will show to owners Venkys ahead of the transfer window.

“We’ve got a list and I will get a meeting with the owners in the next three or four days.

“Hopefully we will be bringing in fresh faces and some quality in the window to complement what we have already got,” he concluded.

Blackburn take on Cardiff in the Carling Cup quarter finals on Tuesday night.
