Jensen agrees new deal

Jensen agrees new deal

John Jensen has put pen to paper without hesitation to stay on as Steve Kean's assistant.

Jensen has been the Rovers boss' right hand man for about six months now and although overseeing a difficult time at the club has shown qualities which the club felt needed rewarding.

John told Rovers official website - 'To be asked to stay on means an awful lot to me'

'Steve told me a few weeks ago that he was keen for me to stay whatever happened, but the situation is clearly much better now we have secured our Premier League status.

'It is apparent to me that the Premier League is by far and away the best competition in the world and to be able to be part of it at a club as good as this is very exciting.'

Kean himself chipped in with a very glowing reference.

Kean told Rovers.co.uk - 'John quickly proved to me that he has all the qualities necessary to fulfil the role of assistant manager, not least loyalty and trust'

'He is a football man and we share the same philosophies. I'm delighted that he has agreed to continue with us and see him playing a big part in our future.'

I am pretty neutral on Jensen but he seems to be doing a decent enough job?

Not getting too excited about this at the moment it was a bit hit and miss since he's been around but next season we should get a better idea whether he's any good or not.

Rolling contract, so not much of a gamble, if he can have a positive impact great, if not, it won't cost a packet to replace him, sensible move from rovers

Yep, very sensible. Evolution is what's needed, not revolution. Building on what we've already got - slowly and steady does it.

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
