Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean accepts Paul Clement's decision to move to PSG.

Kean insists he bears no grudges to the departing Clement.

The former Chelsea coach only arrived at Ewood a little more than three months ago but, with Paris St Germain coming in for him, Kean understands why he has opted to move on.

“It is disappointing,” Kean told the Lancashire Telegraph. “I don’t want to make the announcement for Paul or the club where I think he is going to, but I don’t think there is going to be any surprise when he does turn up there.

“I think for Paul as a young coach, and I have had it myself, when you have not worked abroad you might think of it as a development. What the club in question are trying to do financially and what competitions they are trying to be in, I don’t think anyone would be surprised.

“He was really gutted that he was leaving.

“He was enjoying his time here, he was very popular among the players and the rest of the staff but we will move on and it is an opportunity for someone else and I think we will have someone else in next week.”
