The Blackburn Rovers caretaker manager Eric Black has said that he would definitely be interested in being considered for the role as the prominent manager of the club.

Eric Black has been placed in charge of the team until the new permanent manager is found has a replacement for the former manager Steve Kean, who resigned from his position a week ago. Eric Black will be taking his Blackburn team for the first home match when they take on Wolves during the weekend. It is one of the first matches of the season according to the caretaker manager, who has made it no secret that he would like to be considered for the permanent job.

Meanwhile, he has also revealed that there are a number of high-profile names on the shortlist. The likes of the former Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers striker Alan Shearer is also being mentioned as one of the names in the minds of the Indian owners. However, Eric Black is hoping that he makes a strong point for himself in the forthcoming games. Even though he has very little experience as the manager of a club, he has the belief that he will be able to do well if given the opportunity.

"I know there are a lot of high-calibre candidates out there, but when I left Coventry some years ago, I did feel there was unfinished business for me in management. This is a fantastic job for someone. It is a club with phenomenal history, a great fan base and first-class facilities. It's no wonder so many have sent their CVs in. All I hope is we can move on and draw a line in the sand over what has happened. There has been turmoil, without doubt, over the past year or so," said Eric Blackwell.
