Agnew 'in the dark' over Blackburn Rovers chairman job

Blackburn Rovers Football Club press officer Paul Agnew has insisted that no one has discussed the club’s vacant chairman position with him following reports he was to be offered the role.

Agnew is currently out in India meeting the club’s owners but admitted he had no idea where speculation regarding the job, which has been vacant since the departure of John Williams, had come from.  

"I’m in the dark over where that came from," Agnew told The Lancashire Telegraph.

"It seemed to come from a number of different sources but nothing has ever been mentioned directly to me.  But if there is to be a restructuring of the club or whatever, I’m willing to discuss any role they may have in mind.

"Anything that is in the best interests of Blackburn Rovers I will do."

Agnew added that he was keen to improve communication between owners Venky’s and fans following a period of change at the Barclays Premier League outfit which has also seen manager Sam Allardyce leave Ewood Park.

"I’ve championed the cause for making sure the communications are bob on because I think that is critical - internal communication at Ewood, communication between the owners and Ewood, communication with the fans," he said.
