News emerged from the Lancashire Telegraph this morning that Blackburn Rovers are planning contract talks with manager Tony Mowbray next month, and Rovers fans are pleased to hear it.
Tony Mowbray has had a successful stint as manager of Blackburn Rovers, taking the club back up to the Championship after relegation to League One at the first time of asking. Rovers currently sit one point off the play offs in 10th after 12 Championship games going into the International break, and they are keen to reward Mowbray for the progress the club have made during his managerial tenure with a new contract.
Rovers are keen to offer Mowbray a long term deal, as they look to build for the future, with some of their star players also tied down to long term contracts, including Bradley Dack, Darragh Lenihan and Richie Smallwood
Tony Mowbray has helped turn Blackburn Rovers into a hard-to-beat side – a vast improvement compared to previous manager Owen Coyle, who only managed 38 games before he was sacked. Mowbray has managed 85 games, winning 43 and losing just 13 in all competitions since joining in February 2017.
Blackburn Rovers fans are thrilled with the news, and have voiced their opinions on Twitter this morning:
Great news that Mowbray is off to discuss a new deal at #Rovers. Turned this club back into something we are proud of. The players are now proud to wear the shirt and play for the badge. It excites me for what there is to come under TM.
