Former Blackburn Rovers favourite Henning Berg is the Championship club’s new manager.

Club owners Venky’s will be hoping Berg can lead Blackburn back into the Premier League after a disastrous spell under Steve Kean which saw the side relegated.

The Norwegian centre-back enjoyed two spells as a player at the Lancashire club, making more than 200 appearances between 1993-1997 and 2000-2003.

A statement on the club’s website on Wednesday read: “Blackburn Rovers can confirm that Henning Berg has accepted the role of manager. Henning, a former player over two spells at the club, is set to be unveiled to the media in the morning.”

Despite a strong start to the 2012-13 campaign with Rovers third in the Championship, Kean decided to leave after describing his position at the club as ‘untenable’.

Blackburn now sit fifth in the table with 23 points after 13 games, only two short of an automatic promotion spot, and five points behind leaders Cardiff.

Berg’s last managerial role was at Norwegian side Lillestrom. He took over in 2008 but was sacked in October last year after gaining only one point in eight games.
