Sherwood still in Rovers' thoughts
TIM Sherwood is still high up in Blackburn Rovers’ thoughts to be their next manager – but the Lancashire Telegraph understands the club are still at the exploratory stage of their search.
Bets were flooding in on the former Rovers skipper to replace the departed Steve Kean, moving him to odds-on, as the club yesterday began to think about sounding out potential candidates.
Sherwood is still understood to be Singh’s top pick but Rovers would have to pay hefty compensation to get him away from his coaching position at Spurs.
It is believed the Londoners knocked back an initial approach from Rovers a fortnight ago but no further official attempt had been made at the time of going to press last night.
It is understood a shortlist drawn up by Derek Shaw, Paul Agnew and Shebby Singh includes several names, with one believed to be Sherwood.
It is understood no formal approaches are expected to be made over the weekend though as, having decided the ‘type’ of manager they are looking for, Rovers will spend the next couple of days investigating their options more thoroughly.
A number of candidates are expected to be interviewed before an appointment is made and, with the majority understood to be in work, the process is expected to go on for a while yet.
