Allardyce to sue Kean

Big Sam has taken out the big gun and pointed it in the direction of Steve Kean from Blackburn.

Yes, you heard that right, Allardyce is taking legal action against his old firm and against the man who replaced him as manager, Steve Kean. It appears that Sam’s move for legal action is in response to a video rant made by Kean in May and he’s having none of it.

The battle looks set to take place in the High Court, too. The video which lasts just over 4 minutes is full of rants and four letter words used by the Scot and Kean voices his opinion on why Allardyce was given the boot from Blackburn.

The clip was filmed in a Hong Kong bar and Kean can be heard talking with Blackburn fans. It was filmed on Blackburn’s pre-season tour of the Far East.

In the clip he is asked about his relationship with Allardyce, who appointed Kean as first-team coach, Kean responds like this:

“I haven’t spoken to him. He mullered me so I said f*** him.

“I worked my b***s off for him and then he had a go at me so f*** him.”

Nice one Keano. The 4 minute video ends strangely with Steve Kean boasting that his ultimately doomed outfit would win the Carling Cup. Alrighty then 😉

A spokesman acting on behalf of Sam Allardyce said:

“He has issued legal proceedings against Steve Kean and Blackburn Rovers but is unable to comment further at this time.”

I think it’s a clear cut case of jealousy and sour grapes on Kean’s part and I hope Allardyce “reams” him 😉
