Kean confident winning over Blackburn doubters

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean knows there are still doubts about him among the faithful.

But the Scot is confident of eventually winning them over.

"With change comes uncertainty," he told the Lancashire Telegraph. "Fans then look at where you are in the table and they become a bit nervous and I can understand that.

"Hopefully they will see we are out of the end of that and the better for it. I think the press we are getting is much more positive and that comes with good results and good performances.

"It has been a great experience. To finish the season in such a strong manner and play our best hour of football was brilliant. It has been a great learning curve and we have all come out of it better for the experience, even though at times it was a little bit nerve wracking.

"I don't know if we have to win the fans over because I feel as though the fans are already with us. There was a period of time when they were anxious, but we were as well.

"I think the fans will see the way we are trying to play and the style we are trying to adopt. They will see the young lads, the loan signings and they will see we will be bringing in exciting ones as well to give us a different dimension.

"The owners have made the decision to give them Premier League football at good value and I think we have already won them over because of the way we finished the season."
