Burnley v Blackburn Rovers - npower Championship

Blackburn Rovers have sacked their Norwegian manager Henning Berg and his backroom staff after the club managed only one victory in 11 games.

The club said in a statement:

“Blackburn Rovers FC has announced the departure of manager Henning Berg, assistant manager Eric Black, first team coach Iain Brunskill and goalkeeping coach Bobby Mimms with immediate effect.

“This decision has been taken following a very disappointing sequence of results. The club thanks the four men for their efforts and wishes them every success for the future.”

The club is yet to decide a successor and and Balaji Rao, a director of Venky’s who own Rovers, earlier told the Times of India, “We have not been doing well and dropping points and losing matches quite often. I want to go up.”

The club’s former manager Mark Hughes, who was recently sacked by Queens Park Rangers, is the front-runner to take the job and may become the third manager of the club in six months.

Henning lasted only for 57 days and disappointed the owners with 6 losses in 11 matches and they stay on the 17th position in the table.
