9:23 am on 28 December 2012

English Championship football side Blackburn Rovers have sacked manager Henning Berg after only 57 days and 10 games in charge.

The decision comes after the resignation of predecessor Steve Kean at the end of September following relegation from the Premier League and months of angry protests from fans.

Blackburn said on their website (www.rovers.co.uk) that Berg's assistant Eric Black, first-team coach Iain Brunskill and goalkeeping coach Bobby Mimms had all been fired.
