New Blackburn Deal For Former City Boss

Former Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has signed a new deal at Blackburn Rovers.

Mowbray came into the Sky Blues in March 2015 and kept them in League One, before a season which saw City early promotion challengers before falling away. The next season, Mowbray saw the likes of Romain Vincelot sold and resigned in September 2016 saying that he could take the team which was relegated that season no further.

The 55 years old has signed a new three and a half year deal at Blackburn Rovers and said to his club's website: “I’ve enjoyed the journey so far, but there is still a long way to go. In my mind, it is always about trying to build, improve and get better.


“I feel as if we can prove to the owners that we can get them back on the right road towards the Premier League. I’m sure they will invest in this team and support the club back to where we belong.”

Former City Chief executive Steve Waggott, who is the CEO at Ewood Park said: “This is the second time I have worked with Tony and what always shines through when working with him is his passion, hard work, enthusiasm and honesty.

“His attention to detail and style of management has already brought success to Rovers by gaining promotion at the first attempt out of League One and back to the Championship.”
