Nov 12, 2020, 11:40 AM
Introducing Football Uncovered, a new investigative podcast series from SPORF. 

Together with Sporting Intelligence's Nick Harris, we’re shedding light on some of the most notorious tales of football ownership.

Episode one covers a very turbulent time in the history of former Premier League champions, Blackburn Rovers.

Often remembered for the heroics of Alan Shearer, Chris Sutton and Kenny Daglish this is a very different type of story. We are talking about the Richest people in India taking over at Ewood Park. From talks of Premier League talent joining the club to the likes of Raul, Ronaldinho and David Beckham being branded around. 

It wasn’t clean sailing for the Venky’s in Blackburn as they brought with them crafty middlemen and mega money agents. This is the story of the yo-yo tenure of the Venky’s as told by Nick Harris, Will Brazier and Richard Johnson.
