After 16 games, Blackburn Rovers FC find themselves in 16th place in the Sky Bet Championship, having won only three of their matches.
Gary Bowyer, 44, has been manager of the Rovers since Michael Appleton’s departure in 2013, but now Bowyer has had his contract terminated with immediate affect for not fulfilling what the Owner’s wished, despite having a small budget to work with.
The 1-1 draw against Brentford on Saturday was the final straw, and that was Bowyer’s final match for Blackburn.
While Bowyer was in charge at Elwood Park, he had a win rate of just 35%. He won less games than he drew.
However, now, Bowyer, alongside all of his backroom staff, have moved out so a completely new manager and his desired team may move in, as Blackburn desperately try to improve upon their performance so far this season.
Blackburn will want a quick and smooth replacement to be implemented, with the new man at the helm potentially before Saturday.
Former Aston Villa manager, Paul Lambert, 46, has been lined up to replace Gary Bowyer, according to the Daily Mail.
However, the Glaswegian had previously suggested that he would rather have the Fulham job, but is ready to bring in all his backroom staff if negotiations go well at Blackburn. Lambert appears to be the favourite.
