Rovers facing court proceedings

Rovers facing court proceedings

Rovers Indian owners Venky's could be set for a date in the High Court after it has come to light that former manager Henning Berg, one of 3 full time managers who has left the club this season (2 sacked),could be owed further compensation for his removal from the Ewood Park hotseat.

Henning Berg, a former player at Rovers as well as manager for a whooping 56 days, was released from his position at the end of December after a dismal run of 1 win in 10 games.

But after signing a 3 and a 1/2 year deal he will be due substanital compensation as part of his settlement. (We don't know the exact extent of this claim, we're not that clever and/or legally minded).

The Independent newspaper is reporting - 'Blackburn Rovers are braced for the humiliation of being ordered by the High Court to pay up money they owe Henning Berg, one of the three managers forced out of the club this season.

'As pressure grows on the game's governing bodies to investigate the shambolic demise of Rovers and insist that the club's Indian owners Venky's appoint professionals to run Ewood Park, Blackburn face a summary judgment at the High Court next Thursday over an alleged breach of contract after failing to pay Berg the money owed after his 56-day managerial reign was terminated in December.

'Berg, who one source suggests is due around £2m, is confident enough of success in the case to seek to short-circuit a full hearing and apply for the judgment, which a judge will permit if Rovers' defence is considered to be bound to fail. Richard Bevan, chief executive of the League Managers Association, which is pursuing the case for the Norwegian, said: 'Blackburn will feel the force of the law in the High Court next week.'

The major threat for Venky's is that they will now face the prospect of having to air some of their dirty laundry in public, something they have been loath to do ever since taking the reigns at Ewood Park.

The article continued - 'Rovers face the decision of whether to settle out of court or endure the one-day hearing, which will be held if Berg is considered to have a 65-70 per cent chance of success, where the Championship club will find their way of doing business being aired publicly.'

Not sure Venky's will want a court date will they? Probably want to keep things in house as usual!!
