Harry Redknapp In Blackburn Rovers Talksby Jack Kitson / 30 October 2012, 09:49Tweet
Harry Redknapp is reportedly set for talks with Blackburn Rovers over the vacant managers position at Ewood Park. The former Spurs boss emerged as a shock contender for the job last week and could now remarkably be in line to succeed Steve Kean at the helm.
Redknapp has previously said that he is only interested in working with a top English side in the Premier League and it remains to be seen whether he would be willing to drop down a division to Championship level. Rovers will no doubt have to splash the cash to lure him into taking the job but it will be a huge coup if they are able to land his services.
Rovers have been searching for a new manager for over a month now, with many fans becoming restless at the amount of time it has taken to find a replacement. Blackpool boss Ian Holloway remains the narrow favourite in the Next Blackburn Rovers Manager Odds, while Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is still in contention, with the club’s former title winning defender Henning Berg recently emerged as a strong candidate for the job.
Meanwhile Tabloid newspapers are also reporting that Diego Maradona, yes Diego Maradona, could astonishingly become the club's new manager. However, Tottenham’s technical co-ordinator Tim Sherwood and Fulham assistant Billy McKinlay now appear out of the running.
