Rovers Deputy Chief Exec sacked in shock decision

Football News 24/7
The last thing Blackburn need is turmoil off the pitch as well as on it. But the news that Rovers have sacked deputy chief executive Paul Hunt suggests there is plenty going on behind the scenes as well.

As we reported earlier, a letter from Hunt to Blackburn's owners was leaked which called for "significant changes" at Ewood Park, including the removal of manager Steve Kean, who was unable to save the club from Premier League relegation this season.

The letter, which was sent in December and subsequently published on Sportin­gin­tel­lig­ence.­com this week, further saw Hunt asking Venky's to "make some significant changes to save the club, perhaps from relegation but also perhaps from administration".

It seems that the clubs owners have acted swiftly and whilst no statement has been made yet by the Board about Hunt's position, it seems certain that he has gone. It also suggests that despite being relegated Kean still has support from the owners - more might be forthcoming on his position as he is due to meet the media later this week.
