Blackburn: Indian poultry giants Venky's have denied reports they are planning to sell struggling English Premier League club Blackburn Rovers.
Qatar Petroleum, a Middle East oil company, have been linked with a takeover at Ewood Park.
However, Venky's co-owner Venkatesh Rao told Monday's Lancashire Telegraph: "We have no interest in selling Blackburn Rovers whatsoever."
This Saturday marks the first anniversary of Venky's takeover with Rovers second from bottom in the table after taking just six points -- with only one win -- from their first 11 games this season.
Venky's controversially sacked then Rovers manager Sam Allardyce, now in charge of second-tier Championship high-flyers West Ham, and replaced him with the untested Steve Kean.
Recently, Kean has been the target of fans' protests but supporters of the north-west side have also turned on Venky's.
