Struggling Blackburn sack coach Henning Berg
BLACKBURN, England (AP) -Blackburn Rovers has sacked its coach Henning Berg after less than two months in the job following a poor run of form for the second-tier club.
Blackburn announced "the departure of manager Henning Berg, assistant manager Eric Black, first-team coach Iain Brunskill and goalkeeping coach Bobby Mimms with immediate effect'' on Thursday - citing "a very disappointing sequence of results.''
A former Blackburn defender during his playing career, the 43-year-old Norwegian was in charge for 10 league games - winning just once and losing five of the last six matches.
He was appointed on Oct. 31 after Blackburn's search for a full-time replacement for Steve Kean, who resigned in September.
Currently 17th in the 24-team League Championship, the team was fifth in the standings when Berg took over.
