Nigel Winterburn is delighted to be joining Blackburn Rovers as their new defensive coach.
Winterburn told BBC London 94.9: "It's something I've been looking to do for a year-and-a-half.
"There can always be improvements in any team you look at," he said.
"I think the way forward in football is to break the game down into sections: goalkeeping coaches, strikers working with teams. I'll work mainly with the back four and goalkeeper.
"I've had a passion for defending and defending properly.
"Paul and the rest of the back-room staff will get them to play the style of football they want to play, I will have nothing to do with that whatsoever.
Winterburn added that Ince's approach came as a bit of a surprise.
"I don't know him that well, I've met him a couple of times but from what I can gather he's a forward-thinking manager who thinks the idea will work well."
