Paul Lambert was the latest manager to take charge of Blackburn Rovers but on April 28 of 2016, he opted to trigger a clause in his contract that allowed him to leave the club after the last match during the season of 2015-16.

Blackburn Rovers is now working to appoint the next manager as the head officials of the club have been interviewing candidates that might have what it takes to succeed Paul Lambert and try to push the club back to the Premier League.

For the past few years, Blackburn Rovers has been performing in the League Championship which is the 2nd tier league of England but they used to compete in the Premier League back in the season of 2011-12, however, after being relegated they have not managed to make a return.

The next manager that is officially selected to coach Blackburn Rovers will have his work cut out for him as there a number of things that the tactician has to do after being confirmed.

One of the things that the manager will have to do is deciding on the future of around 8 players that have their contracts on the brink of expiring and now the club has to find out whether or not to offer those players a contract extension.

Those players that have an undecided future are: Simon Eastwood, Tommy Spurr, Matt Kilgallon, Lee Williamson, Chris Taylor, Simeon Jackson and Nathan Delfouneso. All of these players will turn into free agents in the summer unless they receive and decide to pen a contract extension.

One of the managers that is on the short-list of potential candidates to take up the hot seat in Blackburn Rovers is Gareth Ainsworth who is currently in charge of the League Two club Wycombe Wanderers.
