Kean controversy over video clip

Steve Kean is at the centre of an internet storm after a video emerged which appeared to show the Blackburn manager making disparaging remarks about predecessor Sam Allardyce.

The four-minute clip, which appeared on YouTube and on the website of a Rovers fan group named BRFC Action Group, was apparently filmed during a tour of the far east last summer.

As well as the remarks about Allardyce, the video also appears to show Kean predicting Rovers will finish in the top half of the Barclays Premier League table and win the Carling Cup. Rovers finished second-bottom and were relegated to the Championship.

Kean and Blackburn owners Venky's were this season the targets of sustained protests from the Rovers fans unhappy at the running of the club.

Kean was appointed manager as a replacement for Allardyce, who was sacked in December 2010. Allardyce has since led West Ham to the final of the Championship play-offs.

Rovers officials are expected to hold talks with Kean in the coming days, but have so far shown no signs that their loyalty to their manager is running out.

On Tuesday it was reported Allardyce has instructed lawyers to initiate proceedings against Kean over the alleged comments made by the Scot.
