The Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean has said that he is extremely worried about the fitness of the striker Colin Kazim-Richards. The 25-year-old was a summer signing from Turkey and he has proven to be a major hit with the club. He has scored two goals in as many matches for the club in the Championship. He recently secured the winner against Hull city in the 1-0 victory. However, he had to be taken off in the final few minutes of the match after suffering an injury. It appeared to be serious and as a result of it, the manager Steve Kean is extremely worried about the fitness of striker.
The Blackburn manager Steve Kean is under enormous pressure to deliver the results at Ewood Park after being largely responsible for the club’s relegation from the Premier league last season. He has been given significant transfer funds to improve the squad in the summer. However, he failed to impress the Blackburn fans in the opening match of the Championship season against Ipswich town – a match in which the club could only get a 1-1 draw. The 1-0 win over, though, could not have come at a much better time for the manager, but he is worried about the fitness of the star striker Colin Kazim-Richards.
“He felt a little strain just on the outside of his knee, so hopefully that won’t be a bad one because the last thing we would want is another injury to the strikers. What I’ve said, and I think it’s very important, is we’re trying to be respectful to clubs that own the players that we’re bidding for. If it’s a ‘no, and please don’t bid again and go away’ then I think we’ll try somewhere else because we’re trying to improve the squad right up until the deadline,” said Steve Kean.
