Kean forced to resign at Blackburn

28 September 2012 07:47

Steve Kean quit as Blackburn Rovers manager on Friday, saying he'd been "forced to resign" with immediate effect due to his position becoming "untenable", in a statement issued through his lawyers.

The Scot had faced constant criticism from Rovers fans throughout his two-year spell in charge at Ewood Park after the club's owners Venky's, an Indian-based poultry firm, controversially brought him in to replace the experienced Sam Allardyce.

Kean, however, soldiered on despite the club's relegation from the elite English Premier League in May.

Yet despite Rovers currently lying a promising third in the second division Championship, Kean walked out of the north-west club on Friday.
