Rovers set to appoint Clement as assistant boss
Steve Kean has been handed a boost with news that his suggestion of former Chelsea coach Paul Clement to be his new assistant looks set to get the go ahead.
Kean has been without a sidekick for a couple of weeks now after the very sudden exit of John Jensen prior to the Manchester City master class.
But Clement coming in provides the under fire Rovers boss with a full complement of back room staff and to be fair, an assistant manager with a great reputation from his time at Chelsea.
The Daily Mirror are reporting - 'Steve Kean's job prospects are set for a major boost - with Blackburn`s owners clearing him to name Paul Clement as his new No.2
Kean has been looking for a right-hand man since John Jensen`s departure, and the vacancy staying unfilled raised new questions about how long he could survive.
But Kean - back from a trip to see the owners in India - is ready to appoint ex-Chelsea coach Clement as Jensen`s replacement.
Clement and Kean know each other from a spell together at Fulham and the new man`s experience could lift a squad stuck in the bottom three and whose fans are calling for the manager`s head.'
A manager getting backing or one more attempt before they blame the whole thing on him?
