Rovers have a manager in mind

BY foxsports • December 14, 2010

Allardyce was surprisingly sacked on Monday just weeks after the club's takeover by Asian poultry giants Venky's. Rao has defended the club's decision to part company with their manager despite their steady campaign to date. The Rovers supremo insists the move at the helm is designed to help move the Ewood Park forward, both on and off the pitch. Rao has confirmed the club have spoken to another chairman about who they want to replace Allardyce, although he insists they need more time to finalise the situation. "We've not got anything against anybody. This is just to improve the club and go forward," he told 107 The Bee. "There's nothing against Mr Sam, all the best to him. This is basically to improve the management and the club. "It's (the new manager) in the pipeline. It's too early to mention today. We'll come back to you as fast as possible. "We've been talking to the chairman who is there and other people. We have a target in mind. "I can't tell you right away. Please give us some time. "We are looking forward for the best for the fans. This is for their benefit. We are concerned about the fans."
