Pune: Blackburn Rovers' performance may have gone down ever since the club was taken over by the city-based Venky's group in November 2010, but captain and veteran defender Ryan Nelsen feels the new owners should be given some time before results are expected from the English Premier League side.
"I think the results we want them to be better, but it was going the same way during the previous owner's time. They didn't spend any money, they sold a lot of good players. It was a quite a coincidence that we were down when the Venky's took over," the 33-year-old New Zealander told PTI here.
"We need some time. The Venky's and the new manager Steve Kean are trying to get their philosophy into the team and that takes some time. We are looking to get back to the league and look for results and that takes some time. Obviously we want to finish as high as possible. It would be fantastic."
