London: The owners of English Premier League side Blackburn Rovers, at a meeting in India, have told manager Steve Kean and his players to improve their performance.
Club's co-owner Venkatesh Rao said the meeting was "frank and straight". The Rovers are currently in India, where they played a friendly against Pune FC.
Kean is under immense pressure from the Ewood Park supporters after club's awful season which has seen them muster just four points from seven matches.
"Believe me, it was frank and straight and we need results," Sky Sports quoted Rao as saying.
"Everyone is looking forward - from the players to the manager to the owners."
"I am positive. The luck didn't go for us in the first two games and then we had a wonderful win (against Arsenal) before we were sliding down."
"Now after this meeting and the team coming especially to India, they have had a refreshing time, and I think they will go with a positive note after this meeting."
Rao also assured the fans that the club will soon show results.
"I would like to assure the fans we are very much concerned about the situation," he said.
"It is really painful, I know that. It is painful for the owners with what is happening."
"I would like to be honest - we will show some results and we will produce some results and make our fans happy."
