Henning Berg concedes his return to Blackburn feels like a homecoming.

The 43-year-old, who was confirmed a the club's new manager on Wednesday evening, was part of Blackburn's Premier League title-winning team in 1994/95 and came back for a second playing spell three years on from a £5million switch to Manchester United in 1997, going on to captain the team in their League Cup triumph in 2002.

Asked whether it felt like he was coming home, Berg said: "It does actually. Driving in here to get the papers done was a fantastic feeling - the roads were the same, the weather was the same! I've had many, many good memories here. For myself I couldn't be back to a better place. It's different now coming in as a manager, of course. But this is a challenge that I really look forward to."
