Venky’s: Rovers not for sale

FOOTBALL: Blackburn Rovers’ owners Venky's have insisted the club is not for sale. The Premier League strugglers had been linked with a potential takeover by Middle East oil giant Qatar Petroleum. Co-owner Venkatesh Rao said: "It’s not true and nothing is going to happen like that. We’ve had no offer and we’re not interested. We’re here to stay with the club. We’re not interested to give it to anybody. It's like our baby.” Venky’s became the first Indian owners of a Premier League club in November 2010.
