Blackburn Rovers is in trouble: Steve McClaren has declared his interest in joining the club. Nobody needs to be reminded of the former England boss’ achievements, but, should Blackburn wish to finish 21st in the Premier League, he is the man they need.
In all seriousness, Steve McClaren does want to take charge of Blackburn Rovers and, according to The Times, so does Alan Shearer.
Steve McClaren’s record in the Premier League is not that bad. He did lead his team into the UEFA Cup twice and he did have generally good runs in the domestic cups. Pretty much, he has done with Middlesbrough, what fans expect from Blackburn Rovers.
The Alan Shearer Story is a little bit more interesting. The former Blackburn striker is currently working with BBC, but according to The Times he sent “strong signals” that he wants to take the job. As of yet, Blackburn officials have refused to comment on whether Shearer is a candidate for the job.
The former England striker has not had any managerial experience, but he is – or was – a favourite of the fans as he lead Blackburn to the Premier League title in 1995.
What will happen remains to be seen, but The Times thinks that Stuart Pearce and Sam Allardyce are also on the short-list of managers Blackburn will consider offering the job to.
