Anuradha Desai, the CEO of Venky’s, the new owners of Blackburn decides to show Sam Allardyce who wears the pants or in this case, a sari.
It seems much of the falling out took place over his future role in player recruitment. Venky’s preferring Kentaro, now in the business of football management, over him. Then there was the small problem of Allardyce lashing out against Desai after she gave an interview where she took a dim view of his football tactics.
It seems the new owners want a entertaining brand of football which was at odds with Allardyce’s more win at all costs narrow focus. Their vision is a much larger one. Did Big Sam antagonize the owners or was it the other way around? With Venky’s, it is a chicken and egg story.
