Former Cardiff manager interviewed for Blackburn Rovers job



Former Cardiff City manager Russell Slade has been interviewed for the Blackburn Rovers managerial vacancy, according to the Lancashire Telegraph.


Following the departure of Paul Lambert at the end of the season, Blackburn have taken their time without the pressure of weekly football to thoroughly compile the managerial shortlist.

Blackburn’s management process however has now been accelerated as Charlton Athletic have explicitly shown an interest in Slade, and the Lancastrian side could potentially miss out on the former Cardiff and Leyton Orient boss if the process becomes too lengthy.

Although Slade led the Bluebirds to an eighth place finish in the Sky Bet Championship, he failed to keep his job as Cardiff City manager, who have since replaced him with Paul Trollope.

Despite the disappointment of the sudden departure, the 55-year-old is determined to return to management swiftly, with Charlton Athletic and Blackburn Rovers both showing an interest in the former Leyton Orient manager.

As well as Slade, Brian McDermott, who was sacked by Reading yesterday, Warren Joyce and Neil Warnock are the other prime candidates to take the managerial vacancy at Ewood Park.

Blackburn fans… what do you make of the news? Would you like to see Slade appointed? How do you think he’d fare at Ewood Park? Is one of the other names linked with the job a more enticing option, if so, who? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
