Blackburn Rovers boss summoned to India for emergency meeting
Blackburn Rovers news: Gary Bowyer to meet with owners after dropping into the relegation zone
Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has travelled to India for a series of emergency meetings with owners Venky's, as reported by BBC Sport.
With Rovers currently in the relegation zone, the Venky family have summoned manager Gary Bowyer, managing director Derek Shaw, operations director Paul Agnew and global advisor Shebby Singh.
The four men will discuss a plan that will hopefully see Rovers steer clear of the relegation zone. They will meet with the chairwoman of Venky's Anuradha Desai who is likely to question Bowyer's credentials to take on the managerial role beyond the end of the season.
Bowyer will be away from the Rovers camp for a maximum of two days, returning on Thursday to prepare for Blackburn's crunch game against Derby County on Saturday. Bowyer has failed to win a game during his second spell in charge at Ewood Park and the Venky's have decided enough is enough after the 3-2 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday last week.
The Blackburn board has been full of tension all season with a division between the board and the supporters. Steve Kean, Henning Berg, Eric Black and Michael Appleton have all fallen at the feet of the Venky campaign this season.
There is an army of Rovers supporters that feel disillusioned by the running of the club at present, and this rift intensified when two weeks ago it was revealed that Shebby Singh didn't speak to Appleton once during his time in the Blackburn Rovers hot seat.
Despite the current off-field problems, Bowyer is confident that the club can survive.
He told reporters: " The next six games are going to decide our fate. The game in hand is important. If we compete and play like we did (on Saturday) we'll be fine."
