Blackburn Rovers recently appointed Malaysian defender Shebby Singh as their global advisor. The club are in turmoil at the moment and the appointment of an unknown defender as the global advisor has only infuriated the fans even more. They have been expecting the sacking of manager Steve Kean for quite some time now. The former assistant manager has travelled to India in to hold talks with the owners regarding his future. However, he seems that he has come unscathed from the problems after it was revealed by Shebby Singh will be continuing as the manager next season in the Championship.
It has also been revealed that Shebby Singh will be advising the owners on football matters, while he will also assist to the club in bringing in new players. It is previously thought that the owners were getting advice from manager Steve Kean. Even after suffering a number of defeats in the second half of the season, his position seemed extremely comfortable at the club. It has consequently led to the relegation of the club from the Premier league after more than a decade. It remains to be seen if the club will be able to stay afloat in the Championship.
“Everyone starts with a clean slate. At this moment it is going to be difficult for the fans to think nothing has changed but we would like to re-group and try to take this team forward. I would say we have already discussed terms with a very, very important player, in terms of the characteristics that he can bring. We are also in talks with a couple of other players, in terms of striking positions. As far as I am concerned and as far as I know funds will available to buy the right sort of characteristics that this team needs,” said Shebby Singh.
