Ali rejects reports of Rovers role

Next Story

Judan Ali has denied he is set to become part of the coaching set-up at Blackburn.

Ali, a 39-year-old amateur and youth coach, became a figure of intrigue on Friday following reports himself and former Aston Villa assistant boss Kevin MacDonald were set to take up roles at Ewood Park in the wake of Henning Berg's sacking as manager.

But when asked whether he was being lined up for a position at Rovers, Ali told Press Association Sport: "Not at all. I've had no intentions of coaching here. It's for my personal development, observing how a professional club is operated and structured for elite players. I want to see how it compares with those I've been with in eastern Europe, in India and in the Caribbean."
