Ryan Nelsen claims Blackburn's new owners Venky's have an "exciting" vision for the club.

The Indian poultry giant have come in for criticism from players and fans since sacking manager Sam Allardyce and replacing him with Steve Kean but New Zealand international Nelsen, after meeting with the owners, feels Rovers can look to the future with optimism.

"It's been a crazy couple of weeks but our owners really have a vision in terms of how they see the club and they want to take it. It's very exciting," Nelsen said in Christchurch's The Press newspaper.

"They didn't have Sam in their vision, he's paid the price through no fault of his own. But it could be really exciting for Blackburn."

Nelsen also revealed he would he happy to hand the captaincy back to Christopher Samba.

Kean took the armband away from Samba after the defender expressed his desire to leave Ewood Park in the wake of Allardyce's sacking.

"I will definitely give it back to Chris when the manager feels he's got his head right and is right behind Blackburn 100%," added Nelsen.
