Kean Has Gone
Steve Kean has been 'forced to resign' after his position as Blackburn manager became 'untenable'.
The 44 year old who had no chance of turning around the way that fans felt about him since he took over from Sam Allardyce, but up until now he has bluffed his way through, trying to make fans believe that he knew what he was doing.
The results had been turned around although performances left lots to be desired, plus he had the stay away fans to contend with, many, including myself pledging not to visit Ewood Park again until he had gone.
After a meeting with the club's owners, Kean bragged about having their backing, he felt very positive and was sure he would be staying to see Rovers back in the Premier League.
But after a change of heart a statement read: "For reasons that I cannot discuss on legal advice, it is with deep regret, given my hard work and service for the club for a number of years, that I have been forced to resign as manager of Blackburn Rovers Football Club with immediate effect, due to my position as team manager becoming untenable.
"I wish to thank all the players and coaching staff for their great support and the majority of the fans, who now see their club heading towards an automatic promotion position back to the Premiership. I wish the club all the very best for the future."
