Nelsen calls for clarity

20 December 2010 03:30
Ryan Nelsen has called on Blackburn's owners to make it clearer to the players what is going on at the club. Venky's, the Indian poultry firm who completed their takeover of Rovers in November, created shockwaves last week by sacking manager Sam Allardyce despite the team sitting relatively comfortably in 13th place in the Barclays Premier League. First-team coach Steve Kean has been installed as caretaker boss, with the new hierarchy saying they are prepared to take "a couple of months" to find Allardyce's permanent successor. Club captain Nelsen was left bemused, telling the Lancashire Telegraph: "It would be nice when you're down in the trenches fighting to get a bit of communication - so that's what I'd say to them. "Listen, I have no problem with any owners doing anything, it's their club. But the thing is when you make a monumental decision like that - and it's the biggest decision any club can make - you like to think there's a back-up plan. "We as players know nothing, the staff know nothing. Nobody knows anything about what's going on."
