Blackburn Rovers global advisor Shebby Singh believes the Ewood Park club have got the right man in charge to take the club forward.

The Championship club, who currently fifth in the table, have been searching for a new manager since Steve Kean resigned at the end of September.

And Singh believes that the club are now in right position to begin moving forward with their aims of returning to the Premier League.

He told Sky Sports: “I cannot do anything about speculation. The club was linked with everybody, but we all know who we actually approached and who we actually spoke to.

“Yes, we have made the right decision.”

But Singh also admitted that the club had made mistakes in the past by rushing in to managerial appointments and insisted they made the right decision this time round by taking their time.

“We drew up a list of criteria that we were looking for and then we tried to find the best individual who meets that. That takes time,” he added.

“Also, lessens from the past are very important. We possibly rushed in to a decision last time but we could not afford to do that, which is why we have taken our time.

“It might have taken longer than usual for some people but I don’t think it has been detrimental to the progress of the club in any way.”

Berg’s first game as Blackburn manager will be a trip to managerless to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
