Berg buys into Blackburn vision

Published Add your comment

Henning Berg dismissed the significance of barbed comments he once made about Blackburn's owners following his appointment as manager of the npower Championship club.

Much has been made of his withering assessment of the club's owners, Venky's, while working as a pundit for TV 2 Sporten in his homeland. On the back of Blackburn's relegation from the Barclays' Premier League last season, Berg was quoted as saying: "There are no real managers with credibility who would accept a job like that."

But the former Lyn Oslo and Lillestrom boss claims he now has a more rounded view of life under the Indian poultry giants and outspoken global advisor Shebby Singh. "That was me looking at it from the outside without knowing really what was going on on the inside," he said.
