. "Even before I signed when he took over I thought he played a really big part in Blackburn staying up.
"He's a good man and a good coach and his heart is in the right place. He has everyone's best interests at heart, especially the club.
"He loves the club and he wants us to be successful.
"Whoever is in charge, I think however their attitude towards football, towards the games and the supporters as a whole it does rub up off you.
