Owen Coyle: “Get this club back to where we all feel it should be”

Last week Blackburn Rovers unveiled the ex-Houston Dynamo manager as the man to lead them forward in the upcoming campaign. Coyle has laid out his plans for the future with his new side according to recent reports.

The former Rovers manager, Paul Lambert, resigned his tenure at the club when he disagreed with the owners (the Venky family) over the ambitions and potential future of the side.

When Owen Coyle was announced as the new manager at Ewood Park, he was not welcomed with the most warming of receptions, with many fans believing their were others in the pool available who had greater knowledge and experience, which lead to a certain fan creating a petition – asking the ex-MLS manager to leave.

However since then Coyle has stated that he understands it is up to him to win back the support of the fans throughout the campaign on and off the pitch.

Settling into his new position he has begun stating his vision for the club, as well as his aims and goals for the upcoming season, and his future tenure.

Coyle has decisions to make regarding offering players whose contracts have expired a potential new deal, but understands that in recent seasons Blackburn have not been the most competitive side and wants to change that straight away by signing and loaning the right players for the upcoming campaign.

“First and foremost, the target is looking to get the right players in.

“We want to be competitive in the Championship and, like everybody else, we want to be pushing at the top end of the table.

“Is that realistic? People think it’s not because of where we were last year.

“But I believe it’s a new season, a fresh page, and we’ve got to look to add those players, hit the ground running and take it from there.

“The aim is to get this club back to where we all feel it should be.

“Every manager at every club will tell you the same thing in the Championship, but that’s the aim for us moving forward.”
