Blackburn set for coaching shake-up

Blackburn are ready to shake up their coaching team and could sell under-performing players in January as they look to arrest a slump that has seen them fall to 13th in the Championship.

Although Rovers changed manager, sacking the unpopular Steve Kean and replacing him with former Ewood Park player Henning Berg earlier this season, their fortunes have continued to decline since relegation from the Premier League.

Berg has won only once of his eight games in charge and saw his side demolished 4-1 at home by promotion contenders Cardiff last week.

Now his assistant Eric Black, first-team coach Iain Brunskill and goalkeeping coach Bobby Mimms could all go, with ex-Rover Brad Friedel linked with a move in from Tottenham as player-coach.

Blackburn chief executive Shebby Singh held talks with Berg after the Cardiff defeat, but it is understood that the manager's job is not in jeopardy.

"After a result like that, it is inevitable there was going to be a post-mortem," Singh said. "Decisive action was needed.

"Now we know the direction we are heading in and what decisions have to be taken.

"The pressure is on. We did not expect this to be easy, and it hasn't been, but the decisions have been made that need to be made."
