London: Beleaguered Blackburn manager Steve Kean said on Wednesday that he was confident he would remain with the relegated club next season despite reports of fresh turmoil in the Ewood Park board-room.
Two days after Kean was ushered off the pitch by a bodyguard following Rovers defeat to Wigan which sealed their exit from the Premier League, the Scot insisted he and the club's Indian owners Venky's were not going anywhere.
"It is very simple. The owners are here for the long term, I am here for the long term," Kean said. "We are now taking one step backwards to push forward. I am confident we can get there.
