EXCLUSIVE - Shortlist drawn up for new manager!

EXCLUSIVE - Shortlist drawn up for new manager!

Vital Blackburn understand that Indian owners Venkys have instructed Football Agent Pinhas Zahavi to draw up a shortlist of candidates for the managers job as they look to replace Steve Kean.

It is rumoured that the list is rather long, and includes former Rovers manager Mark Hughes along with another 6 names at this stage.

Kean will be in charge for the Fulham match, which is quite ironic as it was after this fixture last season when Rafa Benitez was approached.

Is it possible that Kean will also remain in charge for the game against Arsenal, but one thing is for sure, Venkys are exploring other options, and it is now surely only a matter of time before Kean is replaced.

If we sack Kean before he has the chance to show what he can do with 'his' squad would any other manager even look at us?

What Yakubu and Dann? He has had the chance. Everton he didnt start any of his new signings. We gave him a chance from January when he had the chance to sign players.. He didn't even use them. 2 wins in the last 17 games says it all. The players we have are good enough, and showed that under Big Sam..
