Kean knows nothing of Eriksson to Blackburn rumours

Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean insists he knows absolutely nothing about rumours linking Sven-Goran Eriksson with a move to Ewood Park.

The Swede was relieved of his duties at Leicester City yesterday and some reports have suggested that he is being earmarked to step into a director of football role to help Kean pull the club out of the drop zone.

But Kean says that is unaware of any plans to bring the former England and Manchester City boss to the Lancashire outfit.

"I've not been told we're going to change anything around in that capacity," said Kean.

"I'm working closely with our sports director, Simon Hunt, and that's going very well.

"If the owners are going to do something, I'm sure they'll consult with me."
