'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Henning Berg Statement from the LMA

Henning Berg has released a statement via the LMA about his recent dismissal as Rovers manager.

The Norwegian's statement read:

'It goes without saying that I am bitterly disappointed to have been relieved of my managerial duties at Ewood Park after just 57 days since my appointment.

'At this stage I would just like to release a short statement thanking the Blackburn Rovers fans for their incredible support during my time in charge. I have always enjoyed a fantastic relationship with them dating back to my playing days where we shared some great memories. It was an honour for me to manage a club that is so close to my heart and I now wish all of them every success for the rest of the season and beyond.

'I would also like to thank the players and staff for their support and commitment in this short period. They have all done their best and unfortunately the results in these ten games have not reflected their performances.

'I wish the club all the best in the future, and are sure that with a few additions in the January Transfer Window, they will have a good chance of getting a play-off place.'

I personally will always remember Henning Berg as a player, and won't let his reputation as a manager tar those days.

Good call Joe - no need for his stint as manager to cloud his excellent reputation from his playing days.

I think it's unfair to judge him as a manager on the short time he's had with the mess that was left to him by the previous numpty. I am disappointed he's gone. There were signs of good football, and if he'd had a chance to bring in some footballers in january we might have seen a rapid improvement. We'll never know. If Venkys had been this ruthless with his predecessor we wouldn't be in the mess, but at this rate we may have three more managers before the end of the season. Still, the protesters will be happy - they can put away their banners for a couple of games - at least until the next man loses 2 in a row.

He did his best and it wasn't good enough but he's still a good bloke. Unlike Kean! I hope we can bag the right replacement this time
