Henning Berg Sacked By Blackburn Rovers After Just 10 Games In Chargeby Richard Smith / 27 December 2012, 10:27Tweet
Blackburn Rovers have sacked manager, Henning Berg, after just 10 games in charge at Ewood Park.
The Norwegian was appointed by Blackburn's owners, the Venky's, in November as the replacement to Steve Kean but after just one win in two months at the helm, the family of Indian billionaires have decided to cut their losses sooner rather than later.
Berg's record during his short stint reads, played 10, won one, lost six and drawn three and he leaves with the Lancashire club positioned 17th in the Championship. The final straw came on Boxing Day with a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Middlesbrough.
The search now begins for Berg's replacement and with the January transfer window set to swing open in five days it would appear that the new manger will come in with the remit of bringing in new players capable of pushing Rovers back in to the promotion race.
Early names being linked to the vacancy include Mark Hughes, who managed the club for four years between 2004 and 2008. Having recently been dismissed by QPR, Hughes will likely have to drop to the Championship to rebuild his reputation. Kenny Dalglish, who guided Blackburn to the Premier League title in 1995 is another name mentioned in the early market for next blackburn manager betting, along with Sean O'Driscoll who was sacked on Boxing Day by Nottingham Forest as well as Kevin Keegan, Roberto Di Matteo and Roy Keane.
