Next Blackburn Rovers Manager Betting Odds
Since their relegation to the Championship in 2012, Blackburn Rovers have failed to reach the heights of their previous campaigns. Dropping down to League One for the 2017/18 season but coming up at the first time of asking in second place. However, since their relegation to the Championship, their best finish came last season where they finished in 7th - under current manager Jon Dahl Tomasson who took over from Tony Mowbray at the start of that season.

Jon Dahl Tomasson's time at Blackburn Rovers
In Jon Dahl Tomasson's first season, he performed well as the team narrowly missed out on the play-offs through goal difference behind Sunderland. However, the end of Blackburn's season put a lot of pressure on the Dane. With just one win in their final nine games, Blackburn went from being the only team that looked certain to reach the play-offs to the team to catch. In the end, their inability to hold onto a lead cost them promotion as they dropped 14 points between Christmas and the end of the season from winning positions, three of them came against the team that replaced them in the promotion positions - Sunderland.
Whether or not Jon Dahl Tomasson gets sacked from his role as coach of Blackburn Rovers in 2024 is yet to be seen. However, if he is to keep his job, they'll need to play a lot better than they did in the backend of the last campaign.
Who will be the next Blackburn manager?
Blackburn will be looking to get out of the football league by eventually getting promoted back to the Premier League. However, a poor start to the season has left the former Premier League champions looking over their shoulder at the likes of Sheffield Wednesday rather than looking up at the play-offs. Mid-season, the gaps between play-offs and relegation are small, a five-game win streak can take a team from relegation candidates to play-off hopefuls. With this in mind, if Blackburn Rovers decide to sack Jon Dahl Tomasson, they'll likely look towards managers who have guided teams to promotion, whether that is through the play off final or through automatic promotion.
The next Blackburn manager odds will likely suggest the likes of Steve Cooper may be interested in the role. However, it might not be a surprise for the club to go back to Tony Mowbray if they wish to prioritise staying in the league. But we believe that Tomasson will likely receive time in the role as Blackburn Rovers hope to relive the days of Chris Sutton, Alan Shearer and Kenny Dalglish sometime in their future.
