Man Utd ace Owen slams Blackburn 'haters' targeting Kean

Manchester United striker Michael Owen blasted Blackburn Rovers fans for barracking manager Steve Kean throughout last night's defeat to Bolton Wanderers. Owen described the abuse as "football hate".

He tweeted: "He may or may not be good enough but regardless, nobody deserves the abuse he is getting. He is probably a nice fella, no doubt twice as decent as the so called fans abusing him. I would love Blackburn to get something out of the game to see his and the fans' reaction.

"If somebody shouts abuse in the street like they do in a football stadium they would get locked up. Why does paying £30 entitle you to hurl abuse at people?"
