Ince handed Rovers reins

Published Add your comment

Paul Ince has agreed a three-year deal to succeed Mark Hughes as Blackburn manager.

Former England captain Ince, 40, enjoyed a fine season in charge of MK Dons last season, leading them to the Coca-Cola League Two title and the Johnstone´s Paint Trophy and has been heavily linked with a move to Ewood Park in recent days.

Ince, who enjoyed an illustrious playing career with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Inter Milan, previously coached Macclesfield, who he saved from relegation from the Football League in 2006-07 but this will be his first management job in the top flight.
