Blackburn boss Steve Kean and his players have been told results must improve after a meeting with club owners Venky's in India.

Kean has come under increasing pressure from the Ewood Park supporters after a miserable start to the season which has seen them garner just four points from seven matches.

The Rovers squad flew out to India during the international break to play a friendly match against Pune, which had originally been scheduled for pre-season, with the club hierarchy taking the opportunity to speak with their staff.

Co-owner Venkatesh Rao revealed that the meeting had been 'frank and straight' and is confident it can prove to be a turning point in their season.

Rao told Sky Sports News: "Believe me, it was frank and straight and we need results.

Venkatesh Rao Quotes of the week

"Everyone is looking forward - from the players to the manager to the owners.

Painful

"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 admitted that the club's current position was difficult to take and has pledged that they will soon give the supporters something to smile about.

He added: "I would like to assure the fans we are very much concerned about the situation.

"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."
