Ince Named New Rovers Manager

Ince Named New Rovers Manager

Paul Ince has been confirmed as the new manager of Blackburn Rovers.

Finally the search to replace Mark Hughes has ended with Rovers appointing Milton Keynes Dons' Ince, with the former Manchester United and England International star confirmed on Sunday, signing a three-year-contract at Ewood Park.

Ince would appear to have beaten of competition strongest competition in the shape of Danish legend Michael Laudrup, with Steve McClaren accepting the FC Twente job when he knew he wasn't getting the job at Ewood Park, and Sam Allardyce withdrawing due to the fact he would have been beaten to the post by a manager who doesn't even hold the necessary qualifications at the moment. However, it is understood he will get special dispensation from the Premier League to earn this.

Ince has performed superb jobs with Macclesfield and MK Dons, now we just have to see if he can do this at the VERY highest level as well, however, I am sure that he can.

That would be my concern. He is going to need time but we need to be kicking on so not overly excited about this appointment to be honest guys. He has my backing but I can't see him making us better!

Is he bringing ex-Latics boss Ray Mathias with him? Mathias has been Incey's assistant at Mac and at MK and he will undoubtedly need him at Ewood, if he does you'll have got a cracker, Mathias is an excellent coach

He did tremendously well in League Two with both Macclesfield and MK Dons. I doubt he will have any trouble adapting to managing in the Premiership when he played under a manager like Alex Ferguson for so long.

Welcome to the club Paul, we wish you all the best and I'm sure we will all get behind you! I'm not gonna lie I'm surprised at your appointment, I championed Laudrup from the second Shearer pulled out. I'm surprised that he did not get it his achievements far out weigh yours so far, his pulling power and fan base in Europe would only have helped push us forward. Its gonna be an interesting year I do not see our top players hanging round if we miss out on Europe again! So Paul over to you Prove us all wrong!

Interesting bet Laudrup was asking for large transfer kitty, so that is why, Ince going to be an interesting season now. Hopefully will get some media praise for having first black english manager in the premiership.
