Blackburn boss Kean proud of SEM connections

Blackburn Rovers caretaker boss Steve Kean has discussed his association with SEM.

The decision to sack Sam Allardyce on Monday sparked speculation that he had fallen out with new Indian owners Venky's and their football advisers Kentaro over transfer policy, in particular plans to sign players from Kentaro's business partner Sport Entertainment and Media.

Kean is a client of SEM and said: "I've been with SEM long before I was at Blackburn. They're a worldwide organisation who have got lots of top sportsmen and top managers, including Owen Coyle and Tony Pulis.

"It's something I'm proud of and glad that SEM are happy to look after me. I don't see that as anything other than positive and good for the rest of my career.

"I would like to take the Blackburn job. If the new owners brought somebody else in and asked me to be assistant or coach, I'd be open to that too.

"I'd like to stay in some capacity. It has always been in my mind one day to be a manager of a Premier League team."
