Indian Owner of Blackburn Rovers states there is too much confusion within the club at present.

Steve Kean’s future as Blackburn Rovers manager is still undecided as one of the co-owners, Venkatesh Rao confessed to their being complete chaos at the club.

Kean met the Venky''s chain of command for talks over his future in Pune last week but a decision was not made then on his long-term employment.

Rao admitted a decision on Kean''s role might not be made for a further month, as the club is in state of utter confusion.

“I don''t know exactly, everything is in confusion, so I would say in the next month we will have a proper situation to talk about,” the Independent quoted Rao, as saying.

“In the next month let us see what happens. I really don''t know on that issue because we are talking about various things, so many – about the manager, about the players, about staff, about the club,” he added.

“Nothing will be said right away. Kindly bear with us for some time and then the whole picture will be clear,” he said.

Kean resumed his duties at Blackburn''s Brockhall training ground on Tuesday following his meetings in India with Venky''s, and it is understood that he still has the support of chairwoman Anuradha Desai.

When asked about the details of his talks with Kean, Rao said: “They were very much honest. Getting relegated is not good news for anybody, and the saddest thing is we did. We have to come back very strongly and I hope that by taking the right decisions, we have to come back at any cost.”

“Right now we are totally in shock so let us take it step by step. I think there is confusion at this stage, we are still rectifying the whole thing as a club. We are in the process of just thinking – we are in the middle of the process,” he added.
