Following the brutal sacking of Gary Bowyer, and the appointment of Paul Lambert (Pic above). Rovers first experienced manager of repute since Sam Allardyce in 2010.
Venky’s new found vigour will now be put to the test.
Will they now free the club of the restrictions of financial fair play and the transfer embargo.?
Will they find new manager Lambert, funds to strengthen the playing squad.
Will they continue their pursuit of Jerome Anderson, and maintain their lawyers attempts at legal redress, against their former advisor and his Kentaro / SEM Sports agencies.
Exchanges between Venky’s and Anderson’s Lawyers have been in progress since 2011. As reported in the Daily Mail 29th April 2015.
Venky’s Lawyers make numerous disputed claims about Kentaro’s involvement in Blackburn after Venky’s bought the club in November 2010.
Amongst many things, it alleges it was Anderson who persuaded the new Indian owners to sack Allardyce and replace him with Steve Kean, a client of Kentaro’s agency partners SEM.
Kentaro are now in administration in the UK. But Anderson says it was entirely Venky’s decision to dispense with Allardyce as they wanted “good entertaining football”.
A quote that has come back to haunt matriarch Mrs Anuradha Desai. Although she maintains she was duped and reading from a prepared script provided by Anderson.
Anderson’s dealings with regard to transfer fees, and players lengthy and lucrative contracts, and excessive agents fees, are also allegedly being pursued and investigated by the owner’s lawyers.
Venky’s have taken encouragement from the lengthy pursuit by the Swiss and American authorities, of FIFA and their officials. And the Rao family are prepared for the long haul in their persuit of Anderson.
Here is wishing them every success.
