Ex-Blackburn boss Kean eager to return to coaching

Steve Kean says he is determined to get back into the management game.

The former Blackburn Rovers boss, who left his role at Ewood Park in September 2012, admits that he would love to become a coach again even if it meant heading elsewhere in Europe.

"I'm ready," the former Reading, Fulham, Real Sociedad and Coventry City coach told the Sunday Mail.

"I've worked at every level at different clubs - from kids at Reading to reserve team at Fulham under Jean Tigana and assistant to Chris Coleman and first-team coach under Sam Allardyce.

"I'll consider every offer. I love coaching but over the last two years or so I have been given a real insight into how to run a club from the financial side in terms of budgets and different restraints.

"I was fortunate at a young age to play in Portugal and learn languages. I got exposure to a different perspective on football.

"I'd consider going abroad again, it would give me something to get my teeth into."
