Henning Berg is under consideration for the manager's job at Blackburn Rovers.

The Daily Mail says Berg, 43, fits Rovers plans of a younger coach with Blackburn connections, having won the Premiership title at Ewood in 1995 and captaining the club to League Cup glory seven years later after rejoining them from Manchester United.

Unlike two other targets, Tim Sherwood and Billy McKinlay, he also has managerial experience, with Lyn Oslo and Lillestrom.
