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

Bowyer unveiled

Gary Bowyer is the new manager of Blackburn Rovers, after being unveiled this afternoon in front of the media.

Bowyer has confirmed he had no hesitation when asked to take on a role he performed both temporarily and successfully last season over two emergency spells. The proposition of a longer spell may yet prove a more difficult challenge but Bowyer has stated he felt the time was right to grab a chance to become a manager.

Bowyer told the press conference - 'It was a no brainer for me, I had to take this opportunity.

'I have been at the club for a long time and I've seen the success over the years and I know what the foundations of that success were.

'I enjoyed it last season and I want to crack on now.

'As long as I keep winning matches I'll stay in the job. Nothing has changed in the demands required.

'The owners spoke with me and made their plans quite clear in terms of what's expected.

With Rovers making numerous managerial changes last season the pressure is on for the club to provide some stability next season, but with football a fickle beast calls for patience could be forlorn.

Bowyer continued - 'If we can have a bit of patience that would be great but we know we're in a results business so the patience will last through the summer and come August it will be gone.

'It was well documented what went on last year and we have to learn from it.

'All I can do is do what we did last year and that was to focus on the football - I can't control what happens off the pitch.'

The new boss also provided news on the player front with Bowyer confirming that Millwall's Chris Taylor, Notts County's Alan Judge and Portsmouth's Simon Eastwood will be in blue and white halves next season.

'We need the honest players coming in who will work very hard for this club' Bowyer finished with.
