Venky’s deny Rovers sale

Updated: May 11, 2012

The owners of newly-relegated Blackburn Rovers, Venky’s, have once again re-iterated that the Lancashire club is not for sale.

Protests against the Indian outfit’s ownership of the Premiership club have been carried out all season by Rovers’ supporters ate Ewood Park culminating in a pitch invasion following the side’s 1-0 home defeat to Wigan On Monday, which confirmed their relegation.

Fans had been calling for the removal of Steve Kean as Manager and Venky’s as owners all season but co-owner VenkateshRao has moved to quell such rumours.

“It is a company of ours and there is nothing in it. These allegations are not correct”, Rao told Times Now.

Rumours of Venky’s selling Blackburn Rovers re-surfaced today after deputy chief executive, Paul Hunt, was fired due to a cost-cutting measure and talk of a leaked letter showing an intent to sell the Ewood Park outfit.

“It is not sacking because of that (Mr. Hunt’s sacking),”said Mr.Rao

“We have to bring the budget down and it is nothing to do with it (the letter) either.”
