Owners ponder Kean”s fate as Blackburn boss skips training to spend time at home
Steve Kean left Blackburn on Wednesday — but only to spend time with his wife and children at home in Surrey as his future hung in the balance.
The Blackburn boss travelled to Weybridge and missed training while meetings took place via video link between the club’s executives and owners Venky’s in Pune, India.
Say a prayer: Not even divine intervention can save Steve Kean now
It appears Venky’s chief Anuradha Desai is the only person standing between Kean and the sack. She was said to be digging her heels in as the club’s advisors tried to convince her to axe the 44-year-old Scot after Tuesday’s home defeat by Bolton left Blackburn bottom of the table.
Fans hurled abuse at Kean throughout the game and demonstrated outside afterwards.
Protest: Blackburn fans continued their campaign to have Kean sacked
Kean refuses to quit but may not survive to take charge of the Boxing Day trip to Liverpool.
Mark Hughes remains favourite to replace him. Sources close to the former Manchester City boss say he feels a strong attachment to Blackburn but would demand assurances and complete transparency from the owners.
