The Championship league is just about to end and the head coach of Blackburn Rovers, Gary Bowyer stated that this season should be viewed as a success and improvement compared to previous ones even though they failed to clinch a promotion spot.
Bowyer said: “The progress we’ve made is down to a lot of people. The backroom staff and the players, they’ve really bought into what we want to try and do and achieve. We all know what this club has been through and we can’t rest, we’ve got a hell of a lot to do. We’ve got to continue and get better.”
The 42 years old tactician has to trim the squad as the Financial Fair Play will be coming in full force in January but he is also setting his sights on a few players in the transfer market who might arrive and improve the squad for the next seasons.
One of the players which Bowyer wants to add into the squad on a permanent basis is Michael Keane who joined Blackburn Rovers on March 7 in a loan deal which lasts until the end of the current season and even though the 21 years old defender has only made a limited number of appearances, Bowyer has been impressed.
“The level of performances Michael has produced for us has been exceptional. But he’s a Manchester United player and at the end of the season he’s going to have to go back to Manchester United. So we’ll have to see what the situation is there first and foremost.” Bowyer told reporters.
Bowyer will have to wait until Manchester United concludes all of their current unfinished tasks which include having to appoint a permanent coach as well as United having to re-shape their squad with many players leaving the club.
