Former home secretary and MP for Blackburn Jack Straw calls for Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean to leave the club.

Former home secretary and MP for Blackburn Jack Straw has called for Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean to leave the club.

Kean's tenure as boss at Ewood Park has come under increasing pressure, with the club currently at the bottom of the Premier League table.

"All of us have been extremely patient with the owners and with Steve Kean, but having been at the game on Saturday and after listened to the one last night I think that there is no option as far as the owners are concerned but to ask Steve Kean to leave," Straw told BBC Sport.

Local newspaper the Lancashire Evening Telegraph called for Kean's resignation in a front-page editorial on Monday.
