Kean disappointed with Singh comments

Published Add your comment

Blackburn manager Steve Kean has hit back at the club's global adviser Shebby Singh, claiming comments made about himself and midfielder Morten Gamst Pedersen have disrupted preparations for the new season.

Singh stated Kean would be dismissed from his post if he lost three consecutive games early on in the season and went on to liken Pedersen to a "pensioner". Singh apologised for his comments earlier this week but that failed to satisfy the Professional Footballers Association, who issued a statement in support of Pedersen on Thursday afternoon.

"I don't really think it was an apology," Kean said. "I think there was an apology that feelings might have been hurt and people might have been rubbed up the wrong way, but I don't really see a retraction being in there."
