Blackburn manager Steve Kean believes he is safe from the sack after a midweek trip to see the club?s Indian owners.
Kean?s future has been questioned after a run of just two points from six games has left Blackburn just one point above the relegation zone.
Rovers have a tough task on Saturday when they visit Arsenal.
“There have been stories about my future, but I’ve been to India and it could not be further from the truth,” Kean said.
“I have a good relationship with the owners and I’m still enjoying it.”
“It was a really good meeting. It always comes around on the 27th or 28th of the month.”
“I get my e-ticket on my phone, get on the plane and get out there.”
“We never discussed anything negative that was putting any pressure on me or the lads.”
But Kean admits that neither he nor the owners are totally happy with how things have progressed since he succeeded Sam Allardyce as manager.
“We talked a bit a bit about the last month and about where we are in the table,” he said.
“We’d like to be higher but we’re only two points further back than we were this time last year”
“They’ve watched the games live and they can see there’s a determination and a fight.
“They know that’s a quality you need at this stage because it’s so tight.”
“We’re all fairly comfortable with the way things are progressing but I know we have to get the points and we have to get them quickly.”
“Relegation was not discussed, not at all. If it happened to any club there’s a massive financial implication but we haven’t discussed that.”
Blackburn will be without defender Vince Grella (Achilles) for the season and midfielders Keith Andrews (groin) and playmaker David Dunn (hip) for the trip to the Emirates.
