Venky’s abused by rover’s fans

Blackburn Rovers’ Indian owners from the Venky’s group were subjected to abuse and attacked with snowballs by fans before the side’s defeat by Charlton Athletic at home. Jitendra Desai, husband of owner Anuradha, was hit in the face as he got out of their limos at the entrance to Ewood Park before last Saturday’s defeat in new manager Michael Appleton’s first game in charge. Relegated from the Premier League last season, Blackburn are placed a poor 14th after 27 matches in the 24-team second division league.  Desai looked distressed as he wiped his face and glasses with an aide’s handkerchief.
