Football boss on drink-drive charge.

Summary: Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean has been charged with drink driving after failing a breath test on Saturday.

Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean has been charged with drink driving after failing a breath test just hours after his side's draw against Manchester United.

The 43-year-old Scot was stopped by officers from Cheshire Police while travelling along the M6 in his Mercedes following Saturday's 1-1 draw at Ewood Park.

He provided a positive breath test and was subsequently charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol.

The former Fulham, Coventry and Real Sociedad coach was bailed to appear at Crewe magistrates' court next month.

Kean was appointed caretaker manager at Blackburn in December following the sacking of Sam Allardyce, before being given the role permanently.

The Premier League outfit is currently locked in a relegation battle and sits one point above the drop zone with one game remaining against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.
