LMA pave way for Ince to take Blackburn job

The League Managers' Association would have no objections were Paul Ince to be named Blackburn manager, despite his lack of a UEFA Pro Licence.

MK Dons boss Ince is the bookies' favourite to succeed Mark Hughes in the Ewood Park hotseat but the Premier League could block his appointment due to his current lack of formal coaching qualifications.

Ince would need special dispensation to take the role, similar to that given to former England team-mate Gareth Southgate, who got the green light to manage Middlesbrough two years ago without being licensed.

The decision to allow Southgate to continue as Boro boss upset the LMA but current chief executive Richard Bevan, who was appointed in September, insists he will not lobby against Ince's appointment.

He told Sky Sports News: 'It's a Premier League rule. The Premier League has made exceptions to it in the past and that's up to them.

'From our perspective, if any manager wants help to get qualifications, either football related or non-football related, we are here to help. We would support Paul Ince if he got the Blackburn job.'
