The Championship club Blackburn Rovers will not be hurrying the appointment of the next manager according to the global advisor of the club, Shebby Singh. The club recently sacked the manager Henning Berg, who was appointed only 57 days ago.
This was done due to the run of poor results, which left the team with just one victory in the last 10 matches in the league. This has meant that they have ambition of finishing in the automatic promotion spot has been destroyed, while the possibility of Blackburn finishing in the play-offs also remains a major doubt.
In fact, the club are closer to the relegation zone than near the top of the table, which has led to the swift action from the club. The single victory for Blackburn in the last 10 matches came in the encounter against struggling Peterborough United. Since the arrival of the Norwegian Berg, the club has looked devoid of ideas on the pitch. Hence, he has been sacked after just 57 days in charge of the club. Berg came as a replacement for Steve Kean, who left the club when they were in the top six in the table. Singh has said that the reserve team manager Gary Bowyer will lead the team until the appointment of a permanent manager.
"I have made my submissions to my bosses. They will receive it, then we will talk about it. We would like to make an appointment on New Year's Day to start the new year in the right way and to see the back of a horrible 2012. As with every organisation, not everybody is always fighting the same cause. Individuals have their own agendas sometimes – this is common everywhere you go. I would say I've just been fighting the regular battles," said the Blackburn global advisor.
