I'm here for the long term - Kean

Blackburn boss Steve Kean claims he still has control of the dressing room, and insists Indian owners Venky's are "100%" right for the club.

Blackburn were relegated after suffering a 1-0 defeat at home to Wigan on Monday and Kean admits it is a "backward step", but believes he can lead them out of the Championship if he gets the right "blend" to his squad.

Kean would not be drawn on Rovers deputy chief executive Paul Hunt, who has been sacked after calling for his dismissal as manager.
