Blackburn Rovers recently announced that manager Tony Mowbray has reached the two-year mark in his tenure at Ewood Park.

Mowbray took charge of Rovers in February 2017, at which point the club were struggling in the Championship. The 55-year-old manager was not able to keep them in the second tier, but he had instigated an improvement in form and retained his position into the new League One season.
Venky’s Ltd, the owners of Blackburn Rovers, retained faith in Mowbray and were repaid when he brought the club back into the Championship at the first time of asking.
Watch how to cross the road like a boss with freestyler Ben Nuttall in the video below…
Now, Rovers are undergoing a period of poor form, having lost their last four league outings, but they look to be safe from any relegation fears this time around. Considering the state of the club when Mowbray came in, the coach must be commended for the work he has done in steadying the ship and restoring the side as an aspirational one, rather than a fearful, failing one.
Following the club’s two-year announcement, plenty of Rovers fans took to Twitter to applaud the work Mowbray has done so far…
What a huge improvement we’ve seen on and off the pitch in that time. Well done Tony and well done Venkys for finally getting the right man

It’s been a breath of fresh air having Tony at @Rovers as he also has the club’s best interests at heart which is of utmost importance. It sounds like the owners also trust Tony with the funds as they know he’ll spend wisely. Here’s to celebrating two years, Tony & many more!
