This Steve Kean Video ( SEE VIDEO BELOW), allegedly filmed on Blackburn Rovers’ 2011-2012 pre-season Far-East tour, sees the Rovers boss slating former manager Sam Allarydce, as well as promising a top ten finish in the Premier League and a Carling Cup win. Scottish gaffer Kean replaced Allardyce after the latter was sacked in December 2010 by the club’s Indian owners Venkys.

The Youtube video has obviously been filmed without Kean’s knowledge, but is unlikely to win him any new fans following Blackburn Rovers’ second from bottom finish in the 2011/12 Premiership that saw them being relegated to the 2012/13 Championship. Allarydce, who now manages West Ham United, is prised for an immediate return to the Premier League, with the Hammers set to take on Blackpool in the Championship playoff final later this month.
Blackburn were knocked out of the Carling Cup by Cardiff, who eventually went on to reach the final before losing to Liverpool FC. Kean has also been seen talking about mercurial young defender Phil Jones, who now plays for Manchester United after moving in the summer, in the video.
