SWIFT MANAGER DECISION

Blackburn Rovers will not be making a swift decision when it comes to appointing the replacement for the former manager Steve Kean, who recently handed out his resignation from the post, according to the global advisor of the club.

Meanwhile, the global advisor of the club, Shebby Singh has said that the club will not be providing any patience to the replacement and will be targeting immediate results. A number of high-profile names has been mentioned as the next Blackburn manager. This includes the former Blackburn Rovers striker Alan Shearer, who was part of the title winning Blackburn team back in the 1992 season.

Shebby Singh has said that the main task of the new manager will be to get the club promoted back to the Premier league. He has said that there will be no excuses if the new manager fails in this job. He has also said that the manager is likely to be provided more funds in the January transfer window. Blackburn have been one of the high spending teams in the Championship, which has led to many accusing of the lack of fair play within the division. The former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy has also been touted as a favourite for the job.

"The new manager must understand he will not have two or three seasons to build the club - he will be under pressure straight away. If he doesn't get it right we will have a chat about things. He doesn't have to worry about losing three games in a row at the start - because he's new we will give him a few more. We don't want anyone to be frightened or worried about coming here. The objective is to build a team but it's not like going to a supermarket and picking a manager off the shelf," said Shebby Singh.
