Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly on the list of Blackburn’s managerial targets to replace current boss Steve Kean, according to The Mirror.
Solskjaer, 38, left Old Trafford to return to his homeland and take charge of Molde and has taken the club to the brink of the league title, leading the table with eight games to go.
Despite his managerial inexperience, it is reported that the former Norwegian international is on standby should Kean fail to turn around the club’s poor start to the season.
Solskjaer’s agent, Jim Solbakken, refused to comment on the speculation linking his client with a return to England.
“Blackburn Rovers have a manager,” he said. “And Ole is doing very well in Norway.”
Club owners Venky’s have insisted that they back their current boss, but with just one point coming from their first four games the pressure is on the Scotsman to improve results.
Having only just escaped relegation last season, and angered over the club’s start to this campaign, over 1000 fans are expected to protest ahead of Saturday’s clash with Arsenal at Ewood Park.
