Sherwood top of Blackburn's wanted list
Saturday 13 October 2012
Blackburn have drawn up an informal shortlist of potential new managers, two weeks after Steve Kean's departure.
Although several big names have been linked with the job, frontrunners include Tim Sherwood and MK Dons' Karl Robinson. A decision isn't likely to be taken before their next fixture, with thhe club's global adviser Shebby Singh stating that they were not to be rushed in making an appointment, despite him ruling out caretaker Eric Black taking over.
Sherwood was the club's first target but it remains unlikely Rovers will be able to broker a deal with Daniel Levy; the Tottenham Hotspur chairman regards Sherwood as one for the future.
