Kean: Rovers will back me

BY foxsports • October 3, 2011

Kean will arrive with his players in India on Wednesday for a pre-arranged promotional visit during the international break that will include a fixture against Pune FC. And though the club's perilous league position is sure to also be on the agenda, Kean - who was taunted by large sections of the crowd after a 4-0 thrashing by Manchester City - believes his own future will not. When asked if he thought the fans' protests would force Venky's to act, he told the Lancashire Telegraph: "No, not at all. They are strong people. They are very much in this for the long run and they have backed me to the hilt. "We'll get through it and we'll do what we did last year when we ended the season brilliantly to stay in the Premier League when we were everyone's favourites to go down. "Our owners are very strong. I spoke with the owner first thing Saturday morning and she said that there were going to be people protesting and not to let it bother me and I won't." "What we will do as a team, as staff and as owners, is stick together and we will turn it around together. I am very confident about that."
