Blackburn have confirmed former defender Henning Berg as their new manager.

Berg won the Premier League title as a player with Rovers in 1995 and the 43-year-old will succeed Steve Kean, who resigned to end a troubled spell as manager of the npower Championship side a month ago.

Amid heavy speculation on Wednesday afternoon, Rovers issued a press release stating they would unveil their new manager at Ewood Park on Thursday morning, before confirming Berg as the man in question on their official Twitter feed.
