Roberts backs under fire Kean



Blackburn boss Steve Kean has received backing from striker Jason Roberts who claims that the players are “100 per cent united” and fully behind their boss.

Kean took over from Sam Allardyce earlier in the season with the club comfortably in mid table, but has seen his side slip down the table and right into the middle of a relegation scrap.

With only 9 games left, Kean has come under fire but Roberts rejected reports that there had been unrest in the Blackburn camp and insisted that the players were behind their manager.

“Everyone is 100 per cent united in our cause and I think you could see that in our performance against Fulham, ” Roberts said.

“It was a performance that was never lacking in effort, we were all pulling in the same direction and it would have been a credible point.

“Without a doubt we are all fully behind the manager. Steve Kean has come in and is someone who is respected by every single one of us.

“We are disappointed we couldn’t have got more results for him on the pitch and we have to take responsibility as players. Certainly we see Saturday as a real opportunity to put it right.”
