Will this be welcomed by Venky’s though?

Blackburn are clearly in need of some ‘financial assistance’ as the clubs debts are increasing, now standing at £102.4m!

Due to these increasing debut, and the cutbacks it will involve (as we know) this cost us Paul Lambert with boss parting with Rovers following last Saturday’s three-one win over Reading at Ewood Park.

BBC Radio Lancashire is reporting that Ian Battersby and Ian Currie, of Seneca Partners, ‘have contacted Indian owners Venky’s about the proposal’ with it now a case of seeing how ‘this is viewed in India.’

Seneca Partners, which Andy Bayes says ‘in genuine’, have made proposals to Venky’s previously but they weren’t ‘welcomed’ at that point in time but the stance may well have changed now!

Bayes told the BBC.

‘The interest from Seneca Partners is genuine. What remains to be seen is how it’s viewed in India. Seneca Partners have offered their services to help before, something which wasn’t welcomed but it’s clear that fresh ideas are required to take the club forward.

‘Whatever happens, Blackburn Rovers have some key roles to fill this summer. Notably a first-team manager, which might now have to wait.’

What do you (if enough is known) think about this?
