Rovers ready for manager interviews

24 October 2012

Blackburn are ready to move on to the interview stage of their search for a new manager.

Rovers parted company with Steve Kean last month and, despite a host of high-profile names being linked with the vacancy, caretaker boss Eric Black is poised to take charge of his fifth npower Championship game against Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday.

A statement posted on the club's official website read: "Blackburn Rovers can report 'sound progress' in the search to find a new manager. Ewood Park officials have confirmed that the interviewing process of prospective candidates will take place over the coming days."

Rovers global advisor Shebby Singh added: "We understand that many supporters are feeling frustrated, but we said from the outset that we would not be rushed into an appointment. This is far too big a decision for that.

"There is a daily diet of non-stop media speculation and we cannot affect that. All we ask is for a little more patience."

Supporter unease increased at Blackburn this week amid reports of rejected approaches for former midfielders Tim Sherwood and Billy McKinlay - both highly-rated coaches at Tottenham and Fulham respectively but managerial novices - and video of Singh explaining the process and pleading for patience was posted on the club website.
