Former Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean is set to become the new coach of Singapore-based club Brunei DPMM.

Kean has been out of a job since he stepped down as Blackburn boss in September 2012. 

The Scottish manager will replace Vjeran Simunic, who guided Brunei to the Singapore League Cup, but the club are currently sitting seventh in the Singapore League, or the S-League, from a league of 12 participants.

Kean will move to Singapore in November and club manager Waslimin Momin has said: "He will come in the middle of November. We want to change our style of play."

Kean was heavily criticised by Blackburn fans during his time as their manager. He saw Blackburn get relegated in May 2012 from the Premier League, but did decide to stay on as manager until his eventual departure in September 2012.

He was often criticised by fans and bizarrely even admitted to not actually watching his new signings on deadline day of September 2012 play live. 

Kean's new club though, joined the S-League in 2009 and became the first club to play their football outside of Singapore and Kean will actually be the first former English Premier League manager to manage in the S-League. 

The S-League finishes in November which means Kean will get their pre-season to work his 'magic' on to the team.

However the league does not actually have any relegation spots so fans of Brunei DPMM will not fear Kean relegating their team.
