Blackburn sack Hunt - report

Blackburn Rovers have sacked deputy chief executive Paul Hunt, according to reports.

• Letter to Rovers owners leaked

On Tuesday, a letter from Hunt to Blackburn's owners was leaked which called for "significant changes" at Ewood Park, including the removal of manager Steve Kean, who was unable to save the club from Premier League relegation this season.

The letter, which was sent in December and subsequently published on Sportingintelligence.com this week, further saw Hunt asking Venky's to "make some significant changes to save the club, perhaps from relegation but also perhaps from administration".

It is reported on Wednesday, according to Sportingintelligence.com's Nick Harris among others, that Hunt has been sacked by Blackburn in the wake of the leak, despite claims that the chief executive was not the man to have publicised the letter, which also saw him request a promotion and a pay rise.

Kean, speaking at a press conference, said: "I am aware of the speculation but I can't, at this moment, confirm it. That is all I want to say on that matter. I just want to talk about the Chelsea game.''
