Blackburn Rovers set to interview manager candidates
3:53pm Wednesday 24th October 2012 in News
BLACKBURN Rovers have confirmed that they plan to interview prospective candidates for the manager’s job ‘over the coming days’.
Rovers global advisor Shebby Singh had targeted Fulham coach Billy McKinlay earlier this week but that move brought an adverse reaction from supporters, with the London club also turning down the approach.
The club have now confirmed in a statement that they have made ‘sound progress’ in their search to find a new boss and are set to hold interviews with possible contenders for the job, with Singh asking for ‘a little more patience’.
The statement added: “Ewood Park officials have confirmed that the interviewing process of prospective candidates will take place over the coming days.
“Rovers have received a very strong response to the current vacancy, with a high level of candidates expressing interest in the post.”
