Former Blackburn manager Henning Berg hopes that his ill-fated 57-day spell in charge of the club will not affect his chances of getting another job in English football.

Former Blackburn Rovers manager Henning Berg has expressed his desire to get another job in English football.

Berg was in charge at Ewood Park for just 57 days before being sacked, having led the side to just one win in his 10 games at the helm.

However, the former Manchester United defender is hopeful that his ill-fated spell at Blackburn will not harm his chances of finding work elsewhere in England, insisting that circumstances at the club were out of his control.

"I'm looking to get back in [to management]. Hopefully I can get a proper job. Do I regret going to Blackburn? Well, it was one of those things. It was a good opportunity for me to establish myself in England as a manager after working in Norway for seven years," said Berg.

"But at the same time, what happened and the way it happened is not something you would have liked. I was very, very surprised by it. You can put it down as experience but then again, that's football. It was out of my control.

"Am I worried that people might think differently of me because of what happened at Blackburn? I hope not. In between transfer windows, it is hard to do too much when you have two games a week. Hopefully that should not count against me too much."

Berg, 43, successfully sued Blackburn last week for failing to pay his wages, with the High Court ordering the club to pay him £2.25m.
